    I wish I could sit and work like that. I wonder how many hours those women spend making bread every day?

    • I was using a degree of poetic licence: they are in fact making poppadoms. But they always seem to be working there in Palace Road, providing a service to the local Brahmin community: a real cottage industry.

      And interestingly, the women were quite happy for me to photograph them. Until this week, I had always assumed they would feel uncomfortable if I took some snaps!

    I would have assumed the same thing, thus proving that one should never assume anything. (Except the occasional air of authority).

    • The air of authority is something I have learnt to assume with consummate ease, but little validity!
