I set out for Loktak lake, home of the elusive Sangai - the brow-antlered deer - which is the symbol of Manipur. Before entering the national park, I went to take a ferry ride to an island in the middle of the lake
I climbed to the top of the island and admired the views of the lake and the island
These 'phumdis' or clumps of floating grass are the unique point of this lake, and the Sangai deer live and feed on the phumdi.
Now thats some awesome branding. I would totally buy this mosquito coil
Good to see computerisation so far into the rural areas
My cool dude ferryman. What style!
No Sangai to be seen - alas - it is too late in the day

I met another biker who is spending a month roaming around in NE. And he is on a small automatic scooter - Honda Activa!
