    The locals are generous and introduced us into their ways of life. Participating in their livelihood activities, and taking part in the group interactive program were both learning and enriching experiences. The night walk amidst thousands of fireflies was magical.

    About - Purushwadi

    Located in the forested Western Ghats, between river Kurkundi and river Mula, in the Akole district of Maharashtra, Purushwadi is inhabited by the Hindu Mahadeo Koli tribe. The local folklore connects the village to the legend of goddess Zakobhai who took it upon herself to protect this village and four others nearby without help from any of the male Gods. It is believed that the goddess lifted up five Hanuman statues from these villages and hurled them down in the Mula River, a feat she repeats every year when the statues are put upright. Cultivation and animal husbandry are the main sources of livelihood for the local tribes. Every year, a firefly festival is organised in the village.
