Sleeping on a rock heated by the sun.

In the villages in Sri Lanka, a very relaxed lifestyle exists even now. A bath in the river at mid-day after washing one's clothes and a snooze on a bare rock, wearing a loose sarong, with the gentle breeze wafting the body, is supremely pleasurable. The sounds of nature assail the ears and one is in a dream land. When the clothes have dried in the mid day sun, one wends home for his simple rice and curry meal. Jak and bread-fruit with a twangy chilly sambol, adds relish to the meal. What else do you want in life? The picture shows a snooze on a bare rock by the river-side.
