Last month violence in the Bodoland Territorial Areas District in Assam has left 400,000 people homeless and at least 57 dead. We travelled to some of the villages that have been burnt by mobs. It presents a picture of horror and helplessness. Despite promises and assurances no one knows how long it will take to rebuild homes and rebuild lives.
