sa-um bur

sa-um is pork fat fermented in a gourd (bur), and a much loved part of zo cooking. there have recently been studies linking sa-um to stomach cancer. the things we love can sometimes destroy us. a lot like how our addiction to electricity is killing the earth.

materials:
electric bulb
jute thread

he heee this sa um bur is really different and cool looking... Dimak ki bati jalao...

well i guess electricity produced through "unharmful means" should be made more viable.. or is electricity itself harmful?..

i think there are 'less' harmful ways, no 'unharmful' ones. even solar panels and wind turbines require plastics to be made and metals to be mined, and the PMs darling nuclear power is all set to destroy the west khasi hills.

I just never thought of electricity as bad for the environment!! You are right, we have forgotten that it is possible to live without some of the things that have become a part of our lives.. that we don't notice how they damage the environment!

true, IHM. it struck me fairly hard too, i seem to have been championing electricity as the 'clean' energy. quite sad (and scary) in retrospect.
