Description:This bundle contains videos of a family's evening at the hearth with guests. The occasion was when a group of us from Buragaon village visited Rijo Sagro's home across the Bichom river on the side of Karangania village, in order to video-record fishing. Rijo's family were our hosts for the night. This was not a planned even. After asking for consent I just placed the camera in a corner and let it run as we all had supper and lots of fun around the hearth.
