Mat grass farming in Tamilnadu
For city-weary eyes, a farmland, such as this paddy field in Tamil Nadu, is like manna for the eyes. We love to see the endless green spread, and the outdoor work, where young and old stand shoulder to shoulder and share the labour. Usually, the labourers sing when they work and it seems like you have walked into a film set in a village. It’s a great sight to look out to from train windows or even if you are just driving past.
Some of the work is mechanized now, but it still seems more romantic than sitting at a cubicle in an office block.
