All things Mizo

This reminds me of one of the core values of Mizos which is "honesty". Crops are being placed unattended on roadside shops with their prices displayed. Customers can place their money inside the jar and walk away with the crops. It is popularly known as "Nghahloh Dawr" meaning "Unattended Shop".  In the olden days as well as in some of the towns today, Mizos don't lock their doors because they trust each other.
