Dr. Benway: Had wondered what she was saying! Was a lot of fun- took a share rickshaw out of Dibrugarh to the nearest tea plantation, spotted these pickers soon after, asked permission from the manager and filmed them for around an hour- as expected this aroused much curiosity, a little suspicion and plenty of laughter!
I stumbled across the bhang ritual whilst walking around Bikaner old town some years back- it was mid-morning, two days before national Holi- this was a particular tradition amongst the locals and taken pretty seriously- was offered some (naturally) but declined as was exhausted from a long train journey and judging by the colour of the mixture reckoned it to be proper strong! Very friendly people and felt most welcome- nearby Deshnok Karni Mata rat temple is an exceptional experience too..
Looks like a war is about to break out. A bit fast edited for my tastes, unless that is the emotion you wanted. The city looked unimpressive, Is there a way you can climb up that mountain and get a wide angle shot of the city from afar?
Nice job though.
