Christian presence in the Poovar Wetland in Kerala, India

Christian presence in the Poovar Wetland in Kerala, India

The entrenched cast system in India forced these impoverished people of the Poovar Wetland to embrace the Christian faith. They were offered the respect which they did not get from being at the bottom of the social hierarchy. The landscape is dotted with evidence of this. This juxtaposed image even shows the water birds in prayer to the cross....underscoring the profound Christian presence!!!! A third bird is seen on the horizon, at the 10 O'clock position, coming in to land. Photographic technique: Keeping the horizon low in the frame puts the cross high in the sky, reflecting the way it is revered by the Chtistian community in this area. The bird coming in to land could represent the belief in the imminent coming of Christ.
