“We abuse land because we see it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” ~ Aldo Leopold Apropos the last few posts, as it is with land, so is it with rivers too. A river, especially one like the Brahmaputra, is so much more than #water in a canal. To imagine we can control it and tame it may prove a mistake more costly than one we can ever imagine, and a gross and ugly overestimation. #land #landethic #aldoleopold #quotes #community #ecosystem #rivers #Brahmaputra #Assam #Nature #livelihood #biodiversity

"Dale Cooper: Harry, I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange." – Quote From " Twin Peaks". Anyone who loves mystery and mystique Twin Peaks is a must watch ! Apparently it’s coming back in 2016. #everydayindia #indiaphotoproject

Mother’s pickle. In the car park of a housing society in Mumbai.

Rajgad (literally meaning Royal Fort) is one of the forts in the Pune district of Maharashtra state in India. The fort is around 1,400 m (4,600 ft) above sea level. Formerly known as Murumdev, it was capital of the Maratha Empire during the rule of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj for almost 26 years, after which he moved the capital to Raigad Fort. Treasure found at an adjacent fort was used to fortify this hill. The diameter of the fort at the base is 40 km (25 mi) making it difficult for anybody to lay siege to it, adding to its strategic value.

#SmilesOfIndia . ‘My name is Devan Hassan Ali and I started work in bamboo in 2000 when I was about 20 years old. I don’t do handicrafts but furniture, like sofas, chairs etc. All the work is done on orders which Gunin sir brings for me, along with the raw material. My wife also helps me in work and it’s always a collaborative effort. My son, however, goes to school. I don’t want him to do this work but find a good job of his choice after his studies.’ . #LifeOfBamboo p.s. the wife was super serious and I had to really struggle to make her smile. After that she never stopped laughing 😀 Dhupguri | Assam
