A season of harvest

It’s harvest time. The coat of green has changed into golden.

Bustle, bustle, bustle – for the ears are frail and about to drop.

While the sun shines, while the crops are still standing.

Before the plunge of hailstorm, before the spray of October rain.

The farmers are hurrying towards the field.

January is a month of Murung

Penii Iniin is one of the most interesting parts of Murung festival of Apatani community. It is a procession interlaced with both by custom and exhilaration. I guess it is a kind of Brazilian carnival, but of a small size. It doesn’t happen every year, though.

This year, I opted out of Penii as photography seemed more tempting. Hence,
