Jawhar: A Beautiful Contradiction

In the rolling hills of the Western Ghats in Maharashtra, there’s a beautiful place called Jawhar. It’s surrounded by lush green nature and is home to tribes who have lived there a very long time. Jawhar isn’t just any place; it’s like a treasure filled with old traditions and a deep love for nature.

When you walk around here, it feels as if the trees are softly telling stories about the local people and their close connection to the earth. Every year, lots of people visit Jawhar to enjoy its peaceful beauty—a kind of beauty that makes you feel good inside.

But not everything is perfect. The local people, the true keepers of this lovely land, are slowly leaving their homes. They’re moving to cities because farming, the way they’ve always lived, isn’t easy anymore due to changing weather and not enough money from their crops.

One of the most important foods for them is ‘Ragi,’ also known as ‘Nachni’ or ‘Nagli.’ It’s a type of grain that grows well there, even with lots of sun and rain. Ragi isn’t just food; it’s a very special part of their culture. It keeps them strong and is a big part of their songs and stories.

Our task is really important and full of love. We want to keep their culture alive, tell everyone the stories about their special foods, and share the heritage of Jawhar with the world. By building Jawhar Farms, we’re not just protecting a place; we’re keeping a very special story alive.
