Melghat
From geography, to weather, to its people and culture, the Melghat region is unique. Although to the outside world, this region is known by “malnutrition” and “Project Tiger”, it is an area with rich culture and history; one that is deeply connected to and intertwined with its climate and environment. This connection between the environment and the people, and how they intersect in a space of creative innovation is a core aspect of the region’s culture.
