On my previous post, I shared about our trip to Mawsynram village to meet the amazing basket weavers and our most loving, kindhearted Kong Elvira.
Today, I want to share the story of how we met Bah Rishot Wahlang, a beekeeper who talks to the bees in the beautiful village of Lawbah.
So here's how it goes...
“If you live in harmony with nature you will never be poor; if you live according what others think, you will never be rich.” This is one of our favorite quotes by Seneca.
Zizira explorers recently visited Mawsynram. Known as the wettest place an Earth, Mawsynram also is known for its honey. And quite literally, we experienced living with the bees.
Do you ever wonder how the food you eat reached you? What hard work goes behind it? Who helps you maintain a continuous supply of food?
Yes, it's the farmers and their hard work.
We often complain about the high price of the crops or vegetables we buy. But hardly do we think about the farmers, their lives, and the conditions they live in.
Perhaps you have heard of Lakadong turmeric.
And are curious to dig deep and discover everything about Lakadong?
Well, you are in the right place. At Zizira, we have partnered with real farmers, in the #LakadongCountry, a group of villages about 90kms from Shillong, that grow the best turmeric in the world.
A week ago, we decided to take a trip down to these villages, meet our farmers, and experience their daily work in Lakadong.
This blog is a diary of sorts, of our trip.
