  2. Really amazing pictures you should have worked really hard to find them I have not seen them anywhere but only here we should take some serious steps to keep our traditional habits and rites from becoming extinct. But I have a question for you where is this mahalinga swamy temple on the photo.Pls reply to my e-mail.

    It would have been much better if the names of the people and villages are added. Without these though nice to see not adding to anyone’s knowledge.. treat this as a + comment for improvement rather than criticism.

    Thank you Jey. As I say, your comments are my command. I take them as constructive criticism. As far as the pictures are concerned, since they have been taken hundred of years back, and where the location and names are not mentioned, it is a bit difficult to identify. I am hoping, some friends/readers may through some light. – JP
