Every village we visit- the entire family is out in the fields except the very old and of course the men (they prefer lounging on thier charpoys and smoking beedi rather than sweating it out with the potatoes)
Catching up with them in the middle of their work, squatting with the kids- joking with the women...
doesn't really seem like a lot of work, especially of you have children running behind you yelling the slogans that you teach them...
"Hamara Neta Kaisa ho?"
"Abid Bhai jaisa ho"
"why should I care who wins and loses? I just want my only daughter to marry well"
Anyone for freshly dug potatoes?
Piles and piles of the favorite vegetable...
All gathered in sacks- ready to move!
"Ammaji show your face- you HAVE to take her picture coz she is still the most beautiful woman in the village"
