Kanavugallee ...

Madurai

Kanavugallee ... or ... Oh my Dream ...

The title of an old Tamil love song from the famous film 'Avanthaan Manithan', 'He is a pure man'.
This man was sitting at the border road-side in front of the Meenakshi Temple last Sunday at 7:30 in the morning.

After I took this photo I sat down with him, having a tea together and soon we were surrounded by a bunch of curious people wondering why this man had so much attention, for once in the center, mostly walked by and even not noticed. Sure when he will see other foreigners he will look forward to meet them as friends and maybe sharing another tea ... so please do, he is a pure man !

Oochappan,,,, I was born in Tamilnadu ( Trichy) and am proud of my Tamil heritage... it sends a shiver down my spine to see a European having so much fascination towards the land of my birth..LONG LIVE your photographic mission !! Dominic RAjkumar
