Pastoral Sublime part 2 of 2

“Better to eat rice grown from your own hand than what others have stepped on.”

This is part 2 of my earlier post.

Photo 1: bits of chaff suspended in the air after a recent throw. Lal Bahadur grinning as usual, possibly because of all the attention!

Photos 2 and 3: Winding up for another throw, hands crossed and primed for a perfectly balanced twist that spreads hulls evenly on the ground.

Photo 4: Lal Bahadur takes a break, silhouetted against the sun.

Photo 5: He gathers grains, stacked for another load. I found myself repeatedly admiring the look of concentration on his face.

Photo 6: Photo of me getting the shot!
