Jungle Lady

Faces of Goa.

I saw her walking towards the terraced fields of Khola in Canacona, Goa, where I was setting up my drone. The sickle-wielding Surang Velip was in her own territory yet she seemed nervous. Women in these remote parts aren’t accustomed to cameras pointed at them, and much as I tried to put her at ease, her flinty expression did not waver. Within minutes she had disappeared into the jungle.
