malda to bardhaman 2

Couldn’t upload it all last night, so a second part…

Here’s where this is

There are 3 types of rice grown on this plain, each thriving in its own season best. Aus in autumn, Aman in winter and here summer rice Boro

Here’s that guy on the left planting rice

Here are the women planting

Another scene

And a guy fishing in a main ditch

In the village video in the previous post about half of the structures were like this

Adobe almost. Mud/straw mix, with elegant tin grooves (sometimes thatch) curved gently like umbrellas

Really beautiful

I don’t know what the brown disc inlays are, but will ask around.

Tuk tuk at night in Bardhaman
