Thumulagunta    I gradually became the village photographer here. I came to know the village through a boy called Balaji and his friend Venkataramana. My visits usually started with a visit to his nice family. My first visit here was special this year as Liz was with me. I did not know the names of the boys until a few years later but I have added them here when I have been able to identify them. At the end are a few pictures of friends from nearby village of Upurapalle. The pictures are arranged with village ladies etc first and, because they tend to take over photo sessions, the village boys have a section to themselves.
