Aadma - An unveiled abode of nature
NATURE TREK, CULTURAL HERITAGE TREK, BUTTERFLY AND BIRD WATCHING TREK
Rajabhatkhawa / Jayanti - Buxa Tiger reserve
14 kms of wavy terrains filled with green lusciousness of Buxa Tiger Reserve forest, with the murmur of sweet chants of the streams, chirps of birds and flash
of butterfly will reach you to one of the most remote in-habitations on earth - Aadma. The place reminds us of the ancient lifestyle of nomadic cultures. The most attractive and also the most pitiful thing of these
unknown paradise are the smiling and innocent faces of this place. The tribe 'Dukpa' of these places live a nomadic life with their families.
of the months are spent in forest for cattle grazing and when the rainy season approaches, they all gather in the village to share their wild experience. The place is isolated from all the rightful facilities of health, education, sanitation, transportation
and every basic needs a community requires in today's age. It sounds quiet absurd knowing that the place is under the jurisdiction of Indian Govt. Precisely, if asked, hardly any one would give you the name of the country and state they live in. The thatched
roofs, and huge wooden houses prove their sole reliability to the natural resources they live in.
They hardly care about the concerning issue of ecological imbalance and live in a world of their own. The innocent wrinkled faces of experienced villagers recite the
way of their livelihood which will certainly bring the fact of globalized world into the circle of doubtful impressions. A couple may have children more than 12 in numbers.India is taking strict measure on population control but it's centralized policies hardly
reach to the senses of these innocent people who are scared to face the reality of civilized world. People die like their cattle, hats off to their positive attitude, hardly a mark of complain is seen on their faces. Their hearts are as big as their houses
which have been built by the processed wood.
the people practice Jhoom farming, a method of farming mainly practiced by the nomadic people as they do not stay in one place, they do require some knowledge regarding farming to make them settle at one place.
We the intellectuals, philosophers , nature conservationists, boast about our works and complain about our unsatisfied demands to the whole world, whole life. These
chastened smiles have no complains as they are thankful to the nature who provide them with all the minimum requirement of necessities of life.
