photos for the laia foundation by pep avila in vedanthanga, a village in the indian state of tamil nadu, where most residents are dalits, or those who are traditionally regarded in the caste system as untouchables. 

though ‘untouchability’ is barred in india’s constitution, dalits (which translates as broken or crushed) remain an ostracized community in vedanthanga, prevented from owning land and forced to work jobs other castes see as beneath them. 

the laia foundation, founded after the 2004 tsunami, works with the dalits of vedanthanga, contributing to their social and economic development through educational, health and women’s empowerment projects.

The Spirit of India

“There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won’t go. For me, India is such a place. When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds. It was as if all my life I had been seeing the world in black and white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor.”
- Keith Bellows, National Geographic

Was really dying for a Kati Roll today so I went out for some! Went to the usual Biryani Cart first but they weren’t open yet so rather than wait out in the cold with an empty stomach, I went to the Kwik Meal Cart instead. I got their Lamb Kati Roll and while the lamb was well-cooked and juicy, it doesn’t beat the Biryani Cart in terms of taste. Still, it is a pretty good Kati Roll and when one’s hungry, does it really matter?
