Chin Head Basket

Have you ever heard about head basket? Well, we have in Chin Hills. Lets call it Chin head basket. It is a kind of basket that you carry by hanging around your head with a string. You don’t carry it by hand. The basket is quite a large one, big enough to carry a 5 gallons or more water container. And people, even young women and children, carry them by a string hung over their head. It is a tiring thing to do so. We use it to carry fire-wood, to carry vegetables, corns and other from farms, to sell vegetables to other villages, cities. We use it like a suitcases or backpack too.
