While staying at a small village
up the hills
I woke up one morning
to find a bare bottom 5 year old boy
holding a big machete
And skillfully carving himself
a cricket bat out of
a dry coconut branch.
With no adult supervision he skillfully sculpt the bat with precision while squatting fully balanced in front of his workbench: a curved wooden log. Location: Villupuram district, Tamil Nadu. Transportation: a government bus from the town of Kallakurichi.
