Agumbe is a small village located in Shimoga district, Thirthahalli taluk in the Malnad region of Karnataka, India. It is sometimes called "The Cherrapunji of the South" after Cherrapunji, in Northeast India as it receives the second highest rainfall in India. Agumbe is associated with rain forest conservation efforts, documentation of medicinal plants, tourism and the promotion of cottage industry. In 1986 the mythical village 'Malgudi' was recreated in Agumbe for the famous TV series, Malgudi Days. I went to Agumbe twice in the late 80s and photographed the life and rain.
