On the road
|Plowing rice paddy||Transplanting young plants|
|Separating grains mechanically||Plowing with bullocks|
|Porting on her head||Workers in rice paddy|
|Our wonderful driver, Senthil, with Siv||Well-loaded bullock cart (being passed)|
|Beautiful landscape||Working in the paddy|
Two days later, driving south-east from Tiruvannamalai, the scenery was somewhat different. There were still many rice paddies, where it was wet, but more sugar cane, cotton, mango trees, nut trees and other crops. It was quite impressive for descendants of farmers like Siv and myself.
|A typically-loaded Indian truck||Girls' exercise class|
|A roadside shrine to the Tamil god Aiyannar|
|A load of bananas||"Praise the Lord!" (He doesn't mention which one.)|
|Cotton field||Mango trees|
The road goes on...
