Life in Shiva village was full of new lessons. We had a first-hand experience of life in the cold mountains. We slept under 1.5 feet of blankets. Ate a lot of rotis and drank a lot of milk. Our skin went dry and our lips got cracked. The fireplace felt amazing and bathing was less frequent.
The camp was on the theme of the Bhaderwahi language, culture, and cuisine.
We tried the Dhekku dance with experts and the students. We taught them ‘Kolkkali’. Hiranya, Parthan, and Chinmayi practiced English with the students. There was a field trip and the camp ended with a unique Bhaderwahi feast.
