For the next year, 2001, she was in Nagaland, exploring and documenting the Konyak culture and their head-hunting tradition – a warfare tool Malhotra said is fast disappearing.

Another trip to the Tibetan plateau in 2002, brought home photographs of the nomadic communities of the land, who roam about freely with just a ‘bag of needments’ but owning the infinite sky and land, she said.

The materials, not just a visual spectacle in itself, also holds sociological value.
