The photograph is that of a living-root-bridge in Meghalaya. The bridge is literally grown by guiding the secondary roots of the rubber tree (ficus elastic) to stretch across the innumerable streams that crisscross Meghalaya. One of the finest examples of sustainable innovation in the commons,  based on traditional skills and knowledge.
