Glimpse of Assamese village scene

They say India resides in the villages. In today's science and technologies enormous achievements inevitably wipe out the differences between village and city. However, there are a few places where village charm is still there. My recent visits to Assam India I click a few pictures in Assam. Love to share with you guys.
  Me wearing traditional assamese attire called mekhela chadar in my in-law's ancestral village.

Tengamora (Roselle) - A favorite assamese sour vegetable.

Banana and banana flower- both edible. Banana flower curry is a favorite assamese staple. It can make scrumptious curry with chicken and sometimes with lentils and sometimes without anything.

 Bhoot Jalokiya(Ghost chili) one of the hottest chili in the world. It can make a very spicy pickle.

Pukhuri(Small fish tank). Almost every assamese village household own a pukhuri for daily fish need. 

 Bhoral(Paddy Storage). You can't imagine an assamese village household without a bhoral. It a symbol of farming culture.

Paduli (Typical assamese driveway narrow and long)

 Cows gazing in the field.

Kaji Nemu- A type of assamese lemon don't know anywhere else found except Assam. Very juicy and it has a great aroma it can increase your appetite.

Oolkobi (Knolkhol or Kohlrabi) - A favorite vegetable.

River fish - fresh caught of the day. Fish curry is one staple food in almost every assamese meal.

Pothar (Paddy field) - A barren paddy field after cropping the harvest.
