More sketches from trips to India in the past. Tirunelvelli is the sort of place that will drive you mad if you have to spend more than a few days there- but it makes for such interesting sketches!

View from the front door of Hari’s parent’s house. I’m fascinated by the crisscross of wires and how the istri-wala and the big truck coexist on the same narrow road.

 

tirunelvelli_marketVegetable market, under the overpass, near the train station. The visual chaos is rivalled by the noise levels.

 

tirunelvelli_rooftopsView from the rooftop of the house. All houses on this street are connected by their rooftops. They’re all long, and narrow, like railroad compartments, and some of the interior rooms are only lit by little skylights with grills, like the one in the foreground.
