Lucky Strike

A scene at the Marundheeswarar Temple, Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai.I was there a few weeks back and struck lucky - found this group meditating in the middle of the hustle and bustle of a crowded temple. The group was an island of calm.
First I was not sure if I should start clicking away but luckily another guy who was getting ready to meditate gave me the go ahead.  Posted by Picasa

It is a `thundu' (towel) covering their hand and I guess they were rolling beads or forming a `mudra.'

thank you, Visithra.

Anvar, yes, I hunched to get down to the same level as those meditating. That also helped to highlight the people in the background making them tall. Thanks.
