In farm, Village

This is a common scene at our farmhouse. Villagers often come to my Dad (on the right) seeking advice, clarification in legal papers, mediation in family disputes or career counseling for their kids. The stone bench outside is where the discussions happen. 

As a small kid, I distinctly remember my grandfather would play this role with aplomb. Am told my great grandfather played a bigger role in these matters because there was no police station or nearby.
