The Irula Tribe
Irulas are a scheduled tribe of India and present in various parts of India, but are mainly located in the Thiruvallur district of Tamil Nadu.
Their population in this region is estimated to be between 1000 to 2000.
The tribes of Southern India are not tribes as in the sense of tribes in Polynesia of Africa, but rather segregated and inter-married communities descended directly through a pure blood line from the original humans who settled in South India after migrating from Africa.
The Census of Kerala identified 756 Irulan individuals from 189 families living in 9 settlements covering .23 km² in the state.
Their main occupations are snake and rat catching. They also work as labourers (coolies) in the fields of the landlords during the sowing and harvesting seasons or in the rice mills.

Going to China!It's been almost five years since I last visited my homeland, and I'm excited and scared at the same time.Going to China!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My last visit in 2009 left me a bit traumatized but I think I'm okay now. My stepmother and half brother in China had tried to kill me with a kitchen knife. I was shaking and crying when I escaped in a taxi that night. After that event, I couldn't feel safe anymore. I changed my flight to return to the US sooner, and never wanted to go back again.
But that's in the past now. I miss my grandparents and other relatives. I miss the food, the cicadas, the unique mountainscape of Sichuan, and ever dwindling bits of the old city that's quickly being replaced by skyscrapers.
I'm looking forward to seeing how much China has changed. Though I'm not looking forward to breathing that air. Air pollution is such a constant health hazard that I had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of respirators for me and my grandparents. I will also be buying air purifiers (that's another five hundred dollars
Deviant Feature #12: SlaireaThis week I want to feature a lovely girl, a great (self-portrait)photographer and a talented model.Deviant Feature #12: Slairea3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Three in one person: Slairea.
I love to tell her that she has a special relationship with photography: she puts her soul into it.
She's dedicated and passionate about her pictures and, as the co-founder of my group ElegantShapes, I can absolutely tell that she uses the same carefulness in evaluating every other deviant's work.
Veronica has also a great talent in editing at high end standards but always using her special and subtle touch that makes each one of her pieces unique and inspiring for others.
I highly recommend taking a look at her gallery here: http://slairea.deviantart.com/
In the meanwhile enjoy my personal selection of her works:

# 5I found his gallery by accident. He wrote a comment on my feature #2, dedicated to the great :iconJaimeIbarra:, I visited his profile, I found a gorgeous postprocessing in a very jaimeibarrish style, I asked him a few things and suddenly I discovered a lot of things about photoshop.# 53 years ago in Art Features More Like This
He has a lot of qualities: nice, patient, he's a great photographer (actually, he's good in a sort of "irritating" way. You scroll the gallery and every piece deserves a look. ._. I wish I had a third or a quarter of his talent.) and, last but not least, he lives in a city I love.
So meet Christian, Italian (YES AGAIN!!!) 34 years old, also known as :icongrooveinjector: !
I don't know how I should describe his works. The dominant themes are the city and the landscapes (expecially sea-related landscapes XD ), but he produced excellent portraits too.
So basically... visit him XD

Lost love letters
from former London
litter a funereal
As landfill martyrs
burnt and buried
like Thames bridges
left in the undertow:
in pressure mines
of war and famine
before the Ministry
kingdoms of rust.
In Bbrother we trust,
adrift on Airstrip1.

VISION - by Lindel CaineVISION - by Lindel Caine3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Early morning in the Nepal Himalayas. With chill water from a mountain stream, a small girl has just washed her face and is now cleaning her teeth with ash from the family hearth. She looks into my eyes and I look into hers, ... so young, ... and I'm reminded how vulnerable and precious is the gift of sight.
"Although there are 147 ophthalmologists in Nepal, around half are located in the urban areas, despite the fact that more than 90% of Nepal's blind population lives in rural areas. The effects of blindness impact the country socially and economically and of the 125 people who become blind in Nepal each day, seven are children." - The Fred Hollows Foundation.
During my time working in the rural, mountain villages of Nepal, I would see children and adults, especially girls and women, with blindness such as you see in this photograph. Either one or both eyes were like this. I learnt from villagers that this loss of
