For the people who live in the mountains of Arunachal Pradesh, life is pretty much a simple affair, revolving around the chores of farming, weaving, festivals and foraging into the forests. Amongst the most important nature’s gift to the tribes are wood and bamboo, which are used in building almost everything they use in their lifestyle, for cooking and for keeping warm in the Himalayan coldness. Due to the minimal ways of the tribes, cutting wood for commercial purposes is non-existent and also considered illegal by law. This ensures a brilliant balance between nature and mankind, a deep respect for trees and appliance of sustainable practices.
