Book Description

This paper was written for presentation at the International Conference on Sacred Geographies, Religious Cultures and Popular Practices held at the Government Arts College, Tiruvannamalai in 2014. The basis for the paper was this blog. I started this blog after my wife Carol and I moved to Tiruvannamalai, writing about our experiences of life in India. We made friends with villagers nearby Tiruvannamalai, and because they knew we were interested, they started inviting us to village ceremonies and functions. I have a life-long interest in Anthropology, and I knew right away that I was seeing things about village culture that were special. Carol and I took many photos to document what we were seeing, and I starting writing about it. Most photos are mine. Research was by the internet.
