Village Life: Harvest Time
A few more shots from Ramathra depicting the villagers hard at work in the fields bringing in the millet harvest. I vividly remember this day……it was hot and humid and out in the fields there was no shade. Not the sort of day for hard physical labour……..but then I’m a slightly overweight, unfit, pampered westerner who doesn’t have a village full of hungry mouths to feed:

More fabulous, vibrant colours and a real sense of community too.
Oh yes they all worked very hard…..a real team effort for the good of the whole village.
Even though we have things simpler here, I still wish that our communities could work together in this way! It would solve so many of today’s social problems and exclusion.
Agreed……we do have things easier in some ways, but we aren’t any happier for it!
No we’re not!! People become more selfish and isolated by the day it seems. The world has an interesting history of producing advanced civilisations that crash and burn as a result of superiority complexes.
Interesting set that tells a story, Mark. Vibrant and rather exhausting looking.
Thanks Jane……I’m glad you like them
So lovely and colourful again Mark. India seems to be a very colourful place in all respects.
It is Adrian……a riot of colour and confusion
Lovely pictures! What a hard work they have! These pictures take me back to my time in India where I was many women work like this hours after hours… A hard life, but necessary for survive…
Great series, Mark. Thanks for sharing.
Excellent colour and focus. Are these hand-held shots?
You must have a very steady hand if they are.
(and a very good camera as well? 😀 ).
Thanks Vicki……most of my work is hand-held 😊
