The Mishings of Majuli, Assam, India (Photo Story)

A peak into daily lives of one of the largest tribes of North East India- The Mishings. They primarily live by the river and sustain themselves through agriculture. Their homes, also called 'Chang Ghar' is built with the help of timber bamboo and thatch, elevated from ground to save from floods during monsoons. The ladies happily indulge themselves in the fine art of spinning and weaving during there free time, while sitting right under their homes. Quite literally. They casually invited us in for some home made rice beer too ! :)
