Thumulagunta village   India 2012              
Return to the main 2012 pictures page                    Back to main India pictures page                  

Thumulagunta is a village south of the University. When i first knew it there was a small track leading to it from near the dairy farm. There is now a dual carriage way that goes past the village which now has mainly 'pukka' houses and concrete small roads. My main special friends there are Balaji and his family who I have known for about 15 years, Suman and in the last few years Barath Kumar who has become a loyal friend, guarding my binoculars and always making me feel welcome. The part of the village I go to is a poorer part, separated from the main part by a track throught the fields. The main part appears more wealthy and even has a big temple. Sadly [for me] the land around the village is being used to build big rich houses.
