Crowning the Himalayan Ghasyari (Grass Chopper)

Crowning the Himalayan Ghasyari (Grass Chopper)

The unwanted grass and weeds grown on plantation fields were somewhere harming the embellishing beauty of Himalayan trees. With an extremely innovative method of overcoming the issue, SankalpTaru Foundation for the first time organized Ghasyari, a grass chopping battle in Uttarakhand Himalayas. Competition was held at the Nauli Gram Panchayat of Chamoli district, witnessing an active participation from Uttarakhand women who made a tremendous feat by chopping 5 Kgs of fodder grass in mere 3 minutes. With full support from our Uttarakhand volunteer, Mr. Dhan Singh Ghariya, Ghasyari was successfully executed, having fueled a spirit of love for environment amongst the inhabitants. Our initiative essentially acts as a medium to safeguard Himalayan forests by encouraging communities, especially the women to plant trees and foster their mountains.
