Culture Aangan - Breakfast with the Butterflies

Culture Aangan is an organisation dedicated to development projects at the grass root level, in the sectors of Agri- community tourism, the revival of traditional art and culture, and education.

70% of migrants in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Kolkatta are from rural India; leaving their homes due to lack of economic opportunities. The traditional livelihoods – farming, fishing, pottery – have become increasingly vulnerable to climate change, uncertain monsoons, and land and population pressure. This migration results in underdeveloped rural areas, a deeply negative view of rural life and an erosion of local cultural traditions and skills, that can be lost forever. They believe that agro-community based tourism can lead to rural development, which will slow the process of migration; in the long run. They also believe that rural tourism can increase environmental sustainability. Bringing tourism to rural homes not only creates an incentive for village stakeholders to keep their homes, beaches and forests clean but also instils a sense of pride towards their natural environment.

Their efforts are directed towards sustained economic growth and development while preserving the local heritage, ethos and tradition of the people and their surroundings. Their endeavours are varied. It involves consolidating and empowering rural women under one brand identity through the self-help group model; creating branded home stays; and the revival of endangered traditional art forms. Village tourism is the need of the day. Today in the growing era of globalisation, indigenous work forms are getting slowly extinct. It is a challenge to keep villages and the associated to the villages thriving from the onslaught of globalisation. Agro-Community Tourism to be more specific is the only answer.

As mankind is assessing the damage to the environment and its effects on the present generation and much deeper on the future generations, Indian villages have a unique opportunity to present a sustainable, viable way of functioning to the world. Generations thru, Indian villages have functioned in close proximity with its surrounding environment. Today, it is essential the world learns a lesson or two from this. It is thus imperative that the villages are saved from being extinct.

These are some of the rare species of Butterflies found in their forests. The forests of Sindhdurgh, bordering Goa.
