Alasona-A village remembered
17 images Created 4 Apr 2012
Alasona is a beautiful little agrarian village near Puri, Orissa. Its about 60 minutes from Bhubaneswar, the capital of the state. The way of life hasn't changed much for the last 40 years odd years. Almost all the farmers practice organic farming, as they have been for so many decades. The village pond is abundant with fish. The village priest has been at his job for over 40 years now. I was there to attend the sacred thread ceremony (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upanayana).
