  2. Sir, it was great to see your work on your website. I am a travel blogger based in Nagpur and have been traveling India and rest of the world for almost a decade now. I read through the challenges faced by the region on protection of this sacred information and how the place faces an exploitation.

    Interestingly, there is a way out through sustainable and responsible tourism. In case you would like to discuss it out, I am sharing my contact no below. i would love to make sure that the traditional knowledge that belongs to the tribe creates a pathway for the originators only.

    My no is +91-7219106104

    Thanks and Regards
    Rajat Chakraborty
