Photographer's Note

I met this man on a wander through the fields of a village in central Saurasthra. I'd gone to visit a Dalit family on the edge of the main village and they had then given me a tour of the 'estate'. The government had funded a new well in the village and had insisted it stand on or near their 'property' thus reversing the time old 'ban' on them using the main village well. This man's family and their livestock lived well away from the main village in quite a substantial traditional house, an oasis of trees in an otherwise scorched arrid landscape. Although the monsoon that year had washed away great gulleys through crop fields....if only more of it could be saved.

I had a bad stomach - his wife gave me a sweet drink and my stomach ache disappeared! He is framed by the the doorway of his house.

Thankyou kind family!
