Ambi Jiji's Retirement

Loading...
Ambi Jiji always planted her crops on soil where forests have been burnt. This jhum field would then be abandonded and left to regenerate into a forest and a new one burnt. Increasingly jhum fields are being turned into orchards which provide cash and food security. Through Ambi Jiji and her daughters, we see the passing of a way of life in remote village in Meghalaya.
