Is this Slate?

Can anyone say what this is? Problem is when I take a photo like this nobody is around! How can somebody be around when I take this photo on the Road somewhere in between Ranipet to Horseley Hills. And even if somebody was there I do not know Tamil or Telegu!

The road looked like this between the rocky hills where above slate was found. I am proceeding towards Horseley Hills. The exact location of this place slips my mind now.
Seems to be Slate? The hills seem to be cut so these came from the hills around that I am sure..

Shantanu.. It looks like slate though.. no idea.. can't be of much help here :(
But the roads are uncannily familiar to the WEST.. reminds me of "The Roadrunner Show":)

Have you been to West? Unfortunately I have not. [Lucky U!! haha!] But you seem to referring to USA.. not Europe which has more greenery. Yes. some roads that cut across USA as I see in the movies really are totally barren and rocky... See the next post and also the next one which is of Belum Caves [coming up in 7 days]

@anon: Since I do not know you I cannot ask you right!!

From big boulders the granite slabs for flooring or for wall clading are made. This is the waste material after cutting the granite slabs
