Sangay Lham and her husband quickly feed their two children, lock them up, and the couple scurries off to guard their chili field. It is 6 pm.

The couple in Isuna, Paro seeks comfort in a tarpaulin shack pitched in the corner of a terraced chili garden until day breaks.

For the farmers of Paro Isuna, a hole in the fence was the first sign of trouble. And sure enough, the rapid loss of chilies confirmed the worst.
