A row of old village houses; the ground floor reserved for the animals, the people upstairs. All built, cut and painted true to tradition.

But times have changed. In the background we see a glimpse of a new building, constructed with brick and cement. And so the charm and beauty of the old is gradually disappearing.

Will the same happen to the people or will they be immune to the blessings of modernity? TV may be inside and portable phone in hand but the faces of these pure village beauties are still radiating as of old.
