1. Since I am familiar with shoes lined up next to the entrance to a home, seeing them lined up against a solid wall is amusing — as if the people slipped off their shoes and walked through the wall.

    Also noticed that the broom would not be comfortable for a tall person.

    1. I, too, have no reasonable explanation for this, as the door has not been just outside the visible frame. But one story from Bavaria approx. 70 years ago came to my mind: in order to spare the shoes, at least the kids had to walk barefoot from spring to autumn. So maybe the shoes are for visits to the city only…
      And yes, Tamil farmers, especially the ladies are smallish, many of them around 5 ft.
