Thumulagunta        India 2011                                 
Return to the main 2011 pictures page;               Back to main India pictures page

Thumulagunta is a village South of the SVU Guest house and the dairy farm. The part of the village I know is to the East of the main more developed village. I have a friend there [Balaji] who I have known since he was nine years old, many years ago. I have been an unofficial village photographer for years. It has grown, with concrete roads and pukka houses over the years and the beautiful farm lands around encroached upon by houses. The small path between the sugar cane, from the main road, is now a dual carriageway road. The people there remain as welcoming as ever. On one visit this year Edwin joined me, with my small camera.
I did not have a note of all the boys names; if you know their names please inform me at C.anthonyATsoton.ac.uk.
