Hi again

I am Tarika Chowdhary, a student of AICE at Vidya Shilp Academy in Bangalore.  I am fascinated about the Blue Mountains (Nilgiris), its tribal residents and their culture.  These hills are ecologically and culturally truly fascinating.  Home to 6 Primitive Tribal groups, part of the very first Biosphere Reserve of India recognized by UN, having one of the highest forest covers in the country, protecting numerous endangered flora and fauna species, etc – they are a treasure trove of learning.

The Kurumbas (a Primitive Tribal Group) are a very special people and this initiative by One Earth Foundation to revive and rejuvenate their dying art form is achieving tremendous results.  I wanted to support this in any which way I could and decided to offer my time and efforts to administer their site.  Now you know – I just provide a helping hand and whenever possible, spend some time in the various tribal welfare projects by One Earth Foundation.   So could you – so call or write and be part something exciting and challenging.

See you in the Nilgiris sometime!!

Tarika
