I had a most profound experience during the visit the virgin rainforest in Tamil Nadu, these last few days.
Here are a few pix. The first one is Ramana's grandfather and his temporary home, while he guards his family's fields of mountain rice (very soon to be harvested).
Here is Ramana climbing the root of a tree during our walk. He's just completed 10th grade at school and now works full time for his family (4 generations live under same roof).
