The people of Araku Valley are simple folks going about their daily chores in a quiet simple way. They are essentially tribals in that area who are either into agriculture in a small way or work in some establishments in one of the nearby towns. Life is tough. No piped water, or electricity on the line, no sanitation facilities, no proper houses, no material resources, no TV, no computers but still life goes on in its own wonderful way and the womenfolk happy and smiling in their living environment. The brunt of the daily grind falls on the women.

I have tried to capture the beauty in these simple folks. What fascinated me was the "Three Rings" design of their nose rings. This is a unique style of the women at the Araku Valley.

Enjoy the pictures.
