Rural Roots in Southern India

My Scholarship entry - Rural roots in Southern India

“Family business”.  This shopkeeper tidies bowls filled with colorful kum kum powder in his family business. Many of the small shops like this are passed down from one generation to the next and many of the shopkeepers seem to enjoy talking and interacting with others in the busy market. One young shopkeeper proudly showed us his personal “facebook” – a tired notebook with pictures and short messages written by travelers from all over the world who stopped by his stand over the years. A nice reminder that curiosity about other cultures and the world around us is a universal feeling.
