Indeed a first lesson, a Tamil takes a shower every day, you must be very clean on yourself. One other of those first lessons is, you should brush your teeth daily as like a Tamil would have been born with a toothbrush !
Hygiene is top priority in the culture here, you may be poor but at least clean, your white shirt must be impecable like it just came from the iron-man.
A kind of shot that takes you to the core of Tamil life, a scene with all the chaotic clutter around showing how simple people live together in these small compounds for the poor in the center of the city.
