Photographer's Note

The slopes of the Lower Himalayas - Here agricultural space is at a premium. Rice being the main staple diet for majority of Indians, is also grown here. Hence, like in many places around the world, step or terrace cultivation becomes the only solution. Here in the hills, the rice grown is often of a fine variety with distinct fine aromas, perhaps because of the soil quality. Rain water, the main source of nourishment for the paddy (rice) crop is abundant here, because it pours here during the monsoons (rainy season).

Took this picture on the way back from Harsil to Rishikesh...somewhere near Maneri & in the rainy season!! This is actually a crop of this picture. Hope you'll like it.
