Visions of Corn from Dirang

It was a bright and nippy winter day and I was at the tiny hill station of Dirang in Arunachal Pradesh. The place was very scenic and beautiful, but the vision that remains etched in my mind is that of the corn stacks that could be seen nearly everywhere in this pretty hill station and around.

Whether I was inside the Dirang Basti or was exploring the tribal villages in Sangti valley, these corn stacks greeted me everywhere. Their bright orange colour stood out beautifully in the Himalayan sun.

It looked like most of these corn stacks were kept out to dry. I am assuming that this corn would help the locals bide the bitter cold winter and hence they were drying them out and making them ready for storage.

But, then, this is just an intelligent assumption of mine. Would you know the true reason?


In any case, here are some more of these interesting corn pictures.
