When it comes to food, people nowadays are spoilt for choice. There’s food every way one looks. The streets are full of them, suiting every palate and pocket.
But, are they healthy? Possibly. Possibly not.
There is one undoubtedly healthy option: traditional fare of the tribes that has stood the test of time, still using age-old cooking methods.
Appearance, taste and texture look the same as when your grandmother first dished them out to you. Unchanged through the years. Made from ancient grains, original, non-GMO, traditionally grown, and unique.
A farmer works purposefully, he does not waste one moment of his time. If he misses a day, there will be no hay. If he plows a little too late, there will be no harvest. If he seeds one hour too late and a storm comes, then all his work will be undone. Their livelihood depends entirely on nature.
To put it in simple words, farmers are humble and hard-working. This article is about a family of traditional farmers from Nongtraw village, Meghalaya. Our team of explorers met them on their recent trip. They spent two days with the farmers and came away fascinated, having seen and experienced the humble nature of these folks.
