Boys of Rural Andhra Pradesh

A windstorm had downed some trees across the road we were on in rural Andhra Pradesh, and everyone got out of their auto rickshaws, buses, cars, and bicycles to observe the proceedings.  An elderly man produced an axe, and younger men took turns attacking the timber blocking the road.  It looked to be hopeless, but was surprisingly efficient.

While we inspected the obstacle, boys gathered, pointed, and laughed.  They loved the attention of the camera.
