Having come across the article on the Veddahs that we published a while back, our reader, Moin Ashraf, got in touch with us with some of his photographs, which provide a more intimate look into the lives of Veddahs. Here’s a couple of amazing and educational shots we thought you’d like to see.
The elders pose for a photograph: Life for the veddahs is not easy; hard work is a necessity to ensure the tribe is fed and safe. But the veddahs will always find the time to kick back and indulge in a bit of a musical interlude at some point in their busy day. They particularly enjoy playing a flute made from wood and bamboo obtained from their surroundings. This creates a serene, melodious tune and it’s quite relaxing to listen to.
