"His parents had wanted him to be a priest, and thereby a source of pride for a simple farm family. But ever since he had been a child, he had wanted to know the world, and this was much more important to him than knowing god and learning about man's sins." ~ The Alchemist
.
.
I imagined Santiago - the young boy who became a shepherd in The Alchemist, just so he could travel the world - when I met Sumit, a young shepherd who had come to graze his goats near Goat Village. He goes to school on weekdays and takes his family's cattle grazing on weekends. Like most people growing up in India's villages, he aspires to work and live in the cities some day.
.
And that's half the reason the Goat Village, 2 hours from Mussoorie, came into being. A lot of people seem to be leaving the villages and their farming culture, because they think their way of life is inferior to that of the cities. The irony is that their traditional diet consists of superfoods like amaranth and finger millet (mandava/ragi), goji berries and chamomile flowers grow wild in these parts, they get pure water from the natural spring, the air is free of pollution (those star-studded night skies are proof) and plastic and junk food hasn't yet infiltrated their lives. So by creating a space where city dwellers can not only escape their chaotic lives but also practice organic farming, feast on local foods and enjoy the simple joys of life, Goat Village is trying to send a message to the locals.
.
.
In an ingenious cafe-cum-greenhouse, @greenpeopleind (who set up Goat Village) are experimenting with premium crops like broccoli, stevia, parsley, etc - so the successful experiments can replace some potato farms which currently only fetch 5 Rs a kg. They've also started retailing produce like amaranth, mandava, rajma and Himalayan red rice collected from local farmers in stores across Dehradun and Delhi, under the Bakri Chaap brand - it's all organic and handpicked and directly benefits the farmers.
.
.
A place that reminds me, yet again, that our choices - where we travel and what we eat - can make a difference. .
