Tales of Village Life

Meet our small, traditional, typical and anonymous Kerala village. Each week our undercover correspondent brings us the latest news and hottest gossip from the community. There is no hint too subtle or nuance too inflected for him not only to hear the story but consider and prognosticate on its significance.

Today, India may be migrating to the city lights, but the beating heart and consciousness of India is still the village with its traditions, superstitions, rivalries, illicit loves and, when push comes to shove, its sense of shared experience and community.

Enjoy our own Kerala tales: they are the face of rural india laid bare!
