This is the picture I used draw on paper if somebody asks me to draw a ypical rural life. I am so glad I captured it how I imagined.

Shot in rural area of Kanakapur, Bangalore, KA when these farmers are encouraging their best friends by unique sound “Hoy Hoy”

I am very happy with this shot because I am carrying this to show my next generation how it used to be in Indain farms

    a great capture. dramatic and dynamic.

    it displays a a joy of movement and a strength that makes all thoughts of change oblivious. as if to say it has always been this way so there is no need for change.

    i know this is romantic thinking and change is inevitable but i just cannot imagine india’s fields toiled with tractors and harvesting machines.

  • thank you Moyo,wonderful encouraging comments! I bet for next 5 years you can see these things happening in India. but since the younger generation is becoming ‘educated’ and opting for city jobs agriculture in India can have to go for machines and this picture might suddnly become a jewel to me!!!
