A village of the Mali Tribe

After Kunduli market, we stopped over at a village of the Mali tribe. The Mali tribes people are great agriculturists. They have been doing crop rotation, rain water harvesting, water conservation and all the latest fads for several centuries. They have amongst the most productive fields in all India - and it is all 100% "bio", as we would say.Here was a woman painting her hut red.
The Mali do seem to like glitzy colors, unlike the relatively more drab houses we saw in villages of other tribes.

The ladies of the village in conference. Were they discussing us?
A lovely painted door...
A girl with Mhendi on her hand - much like in the rest of North India, but note the tribal motifs...
