Description:In the olden days there was no waged labour in Hrusso Aka villages. People helped one another in accomplishing tasks that required large number of people, like building houses and doing agriculture. In this video an actual event of such mutual cooperation is illustrated. Women of Buragaon are engaged in sowing maize at Rani Sapon's field. The video captures spontaneous conversation as women gather, sow the seeds and have tea at the end. Watch this with headphones on for an immersive ORTF sound experience.
