Raw and Uncut

During winters, life turns too extreme in the Trans-Himalayan region of India. Frozen farm lands limit the people from growing any food during winter. Temperatures can drop below minus twenty freezing all available, stored or tap water. Butchers from around the village, have to go by the river bed with their flock of sheep to cut and clean its meat. All the meat is transported to the town and later distributed to shops.
