    • Here, manpower is the cheapest option on the the menu. While this is India’s tragedy, it is probably the single fact which makes my life-style both luxurious and affordable.

      Am I exploiting third world poverty or, through the trickle-down economy, improving people’s lot?

      A bit of both, perhaps…

  2. I am fascinated with the very human dimension of your photos (and lifestyle?), and tend to think that you are preserving something very precious, though I can imagine the quandery. Allowing your own feet to be washed is not always a comfortable place to be.

    • I tend to think it’s me that’s being preserved – and pampered! Though, as you imply, one can get a little too precious about allowing your feet to be washed.

      Perhaps all we can do is be aware of how much is done for us; never take others’ help for granted; then try to show gracious appreciation..
