In the capital of the North-Eastern Indian state of Manipur, thousands of women defy all odds, to keep the Ima Keithel from being devoured by modern markets. It is a symbol of the strength of the women who have fought for their rights, and are fiercely independent.
I came across this article in the morning newspaper, and wished to share it. I hope you enjoy!

My friend posted a link from The Hindu about Ima Keithel on her blog, its so refreshing to read such an article, specially when nation is flooded with news of riots in north-east states.
