Face of Resilience

This is an interesting time when the term community resilience is heard more frequently than ever before.

Working with the indigenous communities in the mountain landscape of Wayanad, I had the privilege to learn more about their resilient way of life and traditional knowledge. which in fact helped them in surviving this Covid phase.

The importance of cooperation among the community members in farming, knowledge in traditional medicine, shared economics (kind of a barter system) all helped them overcome the tough times with hardly any revenue due to lock downs.

Seems, it’s time to think seriously about the trade off between globalization and hyper localization ๐Ÿ™‚

Perseverance …

It is the fourth time these little sunbirds are trying to make a nest. They failed to complete their nest on first two attempts but managed to build a nest last time and even laid eggs but it got collapsed just before hatching.

I really wish to see and photograph baby birds fly away this time ๐Ÿ™‚
