Harvesting season

It is the harvesting season and the family has spent the last few days cutting the crop in their paddy field.

The Jhanjharia couple make piles of the crop, tie them with strings and carry them over their heads to another field for threshing.

Besides rice, the family also grows wheat and sugarcane. A part of the land is used for growing vegetables like eggplant, gourd, radish and tomatoes.
