Life with Kash Flower.

The picture depicts the blooming of "kash" flowers which announces the advent of autumn. Such a beauty of nature can be seen over miles here. The irony of this photograph is that this two tribal women were cutting and collecting the stems of the kash herbs which they will use as fuel for cooking.
