Underneath the blue skies, lies a green valley

Underneath the blue skies, lies a green valley…………..only, it was a green carpet formed of siltation on a lake. on these carpets, people constructed  houses. it is said that houses would move with the direction of the winds and movement of the water. you may sleep in these houses in one part of this freshwater lake, and possibly wake up in another part of the lake. this is the Loktak Lake in Manipur, India. the green masses are locally called phumdi.

    1. such a misleading picture. ‘serene’ is the word that immediately comes to mind when we chance upon most pictures of Loktak Lake. it is the last word though while describing the situation there. thnx for dropping by:)
