Village vignettes - Summer times are ice cream times

Summer joys are ice-cream joys. Vanajakshi comes for summer to her parent's home from her marital village near Chandragiri and gets all the cousins an ice each at 5/- a piece. The cup of joy overflowed that day.

Summer means the sharp horn will beep in the afternoons as the ice vendor some on his cycle or scooter. And all children start begging at home for an ice !

Of all these myriad livlihoods is th fabric of village existance woven. Simple people, earning their living in whatever way they know best.
Adults also love an ice ! Eashwaramma relishing hers.
