Planning your travel/schedule is one hell of a task. But it’s a learning experience.

Nope. But our stay, travel, and food expenses were paid for by NABARD.

Any Other Thing.

NABARD has been doing some exceptional work in extremely inaccessible areas. Documenting these stories have given some real solid exposure.
