Captured a year back, early cold winter morning within the grasslands of Jaldapara..invisible to most.. the dew drops on a hidden nest.. waiting to see the sun....

A bodo lady's daily bread. These are the fresh reeds (stalk) of Ekhra 'Eryanthus' (Elephant grass) which can hide an elephant. A dominant species of the Terai grass community, found presently in patches in Manas and parts of Kaziranga NP. Looking at her fragile structure I tried..my hands on lifting that bunch.. I could not even move it an inch!!
They do their cat walk (~15km) with a head load of ~50kg everyday to build their houses or sell it in market..at Rs10 per bundle !!
'Ekhra huts' can withstand the storm and floods of Assam.. Amazing isn't it?
