Vedanthangal is located in the Indian state of Tamil Nadul, in Kancheepuram district, 80 kilometers southwest of Chennai.
The village consists five small villages in which live 3,700 inhabitants. The majority of residents is dedicated to subsistence agriculture (rice, fodder, and dhal- a type of lentil) and to raising livestock (cows, goats and buffaloes female).
The 70% of the villagers are dallts, a marginalized community within the Indian caste system. The members of this caste are doomed to live forever in a state of extreme poverty. Most of them can not own land and to survive they have to engage in the work that rejects as unworthy the members of the other castes.
Since 2005, Laia Foundation works to help the development of Vedanthagal.

Shout out to all the lucky gals that feel nothing when they’re on their periods while I feel like a fully grown dinosaur on a motorbike is trying to pop a wheelie right out of my vagoo.
When you listen to a song you used to listen to ages ago and you get that weird as fuck spine chilling feeling as you remember how your life was at that point in time
