A village tour

Time is flying by fast. And I have already completed a month in this beautiful part of India. Another month and then I am off with my suitcases again. But before I let go , I am trying to soak in as much as possible from this lovely land.

My walks through these hills have always been rewarding and when I get back , I shall have a whole lot of pictures to treasure forever.

These green golden hills and cottony clouds can make anybody a poet and inspire any one to write. But words will never be enough. On one such walks I visited a village nearby and tried capturing the rustic life of the villagers through my camera. The population is sparse and I barely got a glimpse of a villager !

Hope you enjoy this tour :

Collecting firewood which is the main source of energy for cooking and other purposes. I loved the hand made basket to collect the firewood .

Cane and bamboo form the raw material which meet the requirements of everyday life-from house building to making baskets, fishing traps, items of dress, construction of suspension bridges, religious paraphernalia, etc. Basketry is an important craft of the people of Arunachal , which is exclusicely reserved for men , while women control the textile weaving.
