Kolti Badi Diwali

Badi Diwali is the biggest festival of the year among the lively Jaunpuris and the celebrations go on for two days. All the Kolti dwellers are back home for the 11th and 12th of December to live a life that is rightfully theirs and to make merry with all the colours and flavors of hills that they identify themselves with. These two days of Badi Diwali are eagerly awaited by all Jaunpuris as the time for getting together and sharing happiness, raw and true, with those who share the same cultural roots and also those who are eager enough to venture out of their prejudices and comfortable homes to live with them this beautiful experience. Folk music and dance are major parts of this ambiance of rejoice and so are the traditionally prepared poori and sabzi. Diwali, being the festival of lights, is celebrated with Holdas made of wood and thread. Holdas are lighted up and swung in the air with cries of joy and then thrown away. It’s a delight to watch them rocketing away, burning with just natural yellow fire and minimal pollution.
The program ‘Kolti Badi Diwali’ is mainly about participating in this big cultural event of Jaunpur. But it also involves nature walks and birding trips. It is a unique cultural-eco travel experience for every free spirit eager to get a taste of other cultures and virgin nature.

Kafal Month

Kafal(Myrica Nagi) is an uncultivated fruit of the Uttarakhand hills that repines in the months of May and June. It has high medicinal value and has been mentioned  in ancient scriptures of Ayurveda as a pain killer, beneficial for throat, purifies of seminal fluids and more.  In fact powder made from it’s bark enhances healing. Massage from this fruit oil provides relief from body ache.

Kaphal

Being a non commercial fruit it is available only during this time of the year and the people living in hills engage themselves often in the simple pleasure of plucking the fruit from trees and relishing it’s taste. The seeds of kafal, that they swallow, are said to be beneficial for digestion and the fruit itself is considered to be an appetite booster.

These days Kolti-dwellers often bring large quantity of ripe red Kafal fruit whenever they return to the village from work. Children pluck it from trees, that are abundant in this region, and eat it on way to school and back home. It is even a part of their cherished memories and grown ups often share how they used to bath and play in nearby streams  surviving only on Kafal fruit till late in the evenings.

Kafals are ripe. Kolti is waiting. Come fellow travelers join us before the stalks of nature end for the season 🙂

We are celebrating this month as Kafal Month and exploring it’s presense in Folk songs and in pahadi culture as a whole.
