Kalipur Eco Village

kalipur eco village

Kalipur Eco Village at Gorumara National Park

Viewed from a distance an Indian village may appear deceptively simple. A cluster of wood nailed walls, shaded by a few trees, set among a stretch of green fields, with a few people moving around, cattle lowing and birds singing – all present an image of harmonious simplicity. Indian city dwellers often refer nostalgically to “simple village life”. In actuality, Forest Village life is far from simple. Most villagers are characterized by a multiplicity of economic, caste, kinship, occupational, and even religious groups linked vertically within each settlement.
