Apatani Nose plugs

Many time visitors of Apatanis asks...."how do they breath?"
This is the most common question asked for nose-plugs practiced by older APATANI women. As we can see from photos, nose plugs are made of cane pieces. They are worn like any other nose studs and not inserted into nostrils, hence they do breath like any other unplugged peoples 
While making one's nose-plugs, one have to remember thickness of the skin (nose's) and accordingly it is shaped.
