Sorrow of the East



It's been a couple of months since communal clashes rocked the lower Assam regions of Kokrajhar, Dhubri and Chirang. Ninety-five people lost their lives and 4 lakh were forced to flee their homes as Bodos and Muslims clashed. Although the dust seems to have settled, thousands still languish in hugely overcrowded relief camps. Photographer Udit Kulshrestha captures the aftermath. A grave in Bijni village (Chirang district), which has a substantial Hindu population. The Hindus in this area have peacefully lived with the Muslims and Bodos. But now they are are being forced to take sides.
