Arumugaswami and Yoginathaswami Transit to India

We line up with the runway in Singapore.

A rare sight, the Andaman Islands from the air. These islands lay in the Bay of Bengal between India and the Malay peninsular. They are part of India and home to one of the most primitive tribes on earth, a group who did not even know how to make fire. On the other hand, they did know what the signs of a coming tsunami were and escaped the disaster of 2005 by running into the hills. Contact with them is highly restricted.

Yoginathaswami looking at the elephant destined for the steps of Iraivan temple, at the top of the hill from the river. A map of the Earth will be carved into the ball.

Sitting on this makeshift stool, the silpi carves the intricate designs upon the stone.
