A little paradise hidden 95 kilometers away from Shillong, the river Umngot flows through the village of Dawki near the Indo-Bangladesh border. The river forms the one common livelihood of Indians and Bangladeshis - fishing. Forgotten is the political divide as people from both countries became one here when they sit still for the fishes to take bait. Udayan used the opportunity to click their stillness in this frame.

Bees love it here. They feed off flowers and the cemetery had plenty. That the flowers were amidst the dead didn’t bother them one bit as they went about collecting nectar believed to be the source of life. Truly life amidst death!
