India through my eyes – Work is worship

At the entrance of an ancient Hoysala temple , Adagur near Hassan. No one has probably entered the temple portals for days while it stood in the wilderness , but work must go on. The coconuts were on their way to the Hassan market.

Im going to be travelling tomorrow for an event.You could look me up at Cerebrate.I will see you all next week.

    A welcome break from the usual cubicle workplace, hnh. Reminds me of the Workers Photography Project by Sebastião Salgado. The project spanned 26 countries and 3 years. Google for it to know more.

    Hi Lakshmi! Agree with Kalyan: looks like Sebastião Salgado, which is a huge compliment… 😉

    India 2008 has come to an end at Blogtrotter, but there is lots to see there, still in the BRIC countries… ;). Enjoy and have a great Sunday and a great travel!

    HI, Nice to see that you visited Adagur. I do belong to this village. The temple was being restored twice in the past 30 years but the work remains incomplete due to lack of interest from the Government. The local people are keenly looking out for help to restore the same with the initiative taken by the rural bank manager.
