Because I shoot food-shows all over the country, I come across some incredible traditional kitchens and bartan. This is in a village in the mountains of Tons Valley in Garhwal. I love the kanse ke bartan. And just look at those two-ended tools in the last pic! Ingenious.
Some more bartan from the same mountain village in the Tons Valley. Garhwal is where both the Ganga & Yamuna take birth, the Tons is the third great river that took birth there & believed to have - according to local myths, at one time, hit the plains and become the Saraswati.
Doing a thread on some really cool kitchens & vessels from around India. This beauty is a kitchen that’s about 200 years old, in a house sitting pretty in a mango orchards in Ratnagiri district, along the Konkan coast. Note the missing tiles in the roof doubling up as a chimney.

#Rajasthan textbook explicitly lists “demerits of democracy,” “democracy teaches a person to be selfish, cunning& illusive, “democracies do not produce economic development”,& they are particularly weak “in times of crisis.” #BJP_ভাগাও_দেশ_বাঁচাও #Hindutva kractivist.org/indias-rewritt…
The new textbooks promote the BJP’s political program and ideology.
History is twisted to promote Hindu supremacy&islamophobia. Maharana pratap won battle of haldighati, India won sino india conflict, Nazis were good etc etc #BJP_ভাগাও_দেশ_বাঁচাও #HinduRashtra
these textbooks are essentially political manifestos.
#Rajasthan’s 7th-grade book directs students to “prepare a chart of the advertisements published by the Govt abt its different schemes&with the help of your teacher discuss the benefits of these schemes.”
