Life fading away in the shade

India -Tamil Nadu - Mamallapuram

Going by motorbike on the countryside around Mamallapuram, passing through the small farmers
villages, we met this old man sheltering in the shade. Old and lonesome ? Not at all, still like a
young boy wondering at us ... when you got lots of good memories, you never feel lonesome, even not
at your final trip.
Fine memories will be your eternal life, the more you got, the longer you stay alive.

Somehow sad but a good document of real life. I love India. Is that closed to Madras?
