Thumulagunta village, 2008

The village South of the University where I have become a sort of village photographer. One of the special places in India and in my heart. I have put so many pictures here because many show pictures of friends who have become special over the next few years (for example Barath Kumar, Mounish, Bobby, Dinesh, and others - see my later pictures of Thumulagunta). I am only able to give them names in these photos by reference to my later visits. On my first visit this year I delivered printed photos from previous years.

Local area around Thumulagunta. Rural pictures are from south of Thumulagunta on far side of the Purapalle checkpoint beyond the bypass. All the area around the guest house and villages was like this on earlier visits                                        TOP
