On our way back from Emerald, we noticed some heavy work that goes on after harvest. The town had a special technique to clean root vegetables. We tried capturing some work-moments.

And then it started raining. And to our dismay, it stopped raining almost immediately. Rains in places I have lived in last for atleast 20 minutes. But the rains in Ooty seemed to have a different style altogether. It started raining at 4.35 pm; it rained so heavy that nothing was even visible beyond 30 meters; going outside would have been extremely difficult even with a raincoat on. At 4.42 pm everything was back to normal. Those seven minutes were no different to the locals though; the farmers kept tugging at weeds, the cattle kept grazing, the horses continued trotting around, and truck drivers kept working. It was as if they knew how much rainfall would happen. Probably it is part of being near to nature.
