interesting polyandry

sadly, I recall pictures like this being used while I was young and impressionable to stir nationalistic spirit in American school kids and make us wonder why these people were not scurrying around in futile busy-ness like we were supposed to be growing up to do....LOL

Candra Surya Serena Reale

There is a todar mund up the botanical gardens in ooty. Maintained superbly even now. Heartening to see all the kids go to school and doing reasonably well.

Most rituals have faded out but polyandry is still around.

when you visit,ooty you can go up and see doda manhu can see their plight and see what civilisation has done to them.
