Arunachala Countryside

Been having some nice jaunts into the surrounding Arunachala countryside over the last few weeks. And the below photographs are of the peaceful existence away from the ever sprawling metropolitan area of Tiruvannamalai.









The below is of the cowshed.






And here is the one-week old little calf, Ramana --- ahhh!





A wonderful home-made outside cooker. Which I can tell you from experience works really well.






And some chickens hanging out trying to pick up scraps and tidbits.






And below are the lovely rustic farmers who actually belong to the farm next door - but were just visiting. As most readers will know, its unusual for couples to hold hands in public in this country -- except perhaps for College kids in Bangalore or Chennai etc. However this lovely couple, once my back was turned, were actually holding hands - so sweet.







And the next photograph is of the rustic farmhouse.





I took the next photograph of the tiled roof simply because I like the traditional roof so much.






The fields have been sewn with paddy, and everything looks supernaturally green, the hay is piled up for livestock, irrigation ditches have been cleaned out and repaired, Arunachala is hiding behind the trees - and everything is ready to move right along. Good times are here.
