Winds of change for village near Chandubi lake

By STAFF Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 29 � The destiny of a tiny village lying in proximity to the Chandubi Lake is about to change with all the inhabitants of the village seriously getting involved in eco-tourism initiatives launched by a group of youth under the banner of Wave Ecotourism.

Joramukharia, the village comprising just twenty families and bestowed with all the natural beauties in the world will very soon accommodate tourists in individual households and provide the backpackers with an opportunity to see and feel the ethnic culture, cuisine and hospitality, and well of course with the famed Chandubi Lake in the backdrop.

It needs to be mentioned here that this area already has an eco camp for the tourists with a leaning towards nature and enjoying life in its pristine stage. Cottages atop trees built by Wave Ecotourism give a glimpse into some of the most breathtaking moods and hues of nature and the Chandubi Lake that unravel as the seasons change.

Now Wave Ecotourism has embarked on a mission to promote Joramukharia as one of the best eco tourism village in the country and with this aim they have started making the arrangements for tourists to avail night stay with a family in the village.

�We have also distributed lemon saplings among the villagers and different variety of fruit saplings. The villagers have planted the lemon saplings on the boundary of their houses. We hope with this effort we will be able to prevent man, elephant conflict in the area,� said Niranta Gohain, a member of Wave Ecotourism. Gohain mentioned that as the villagers have been facing problems from the wild elephants, the lemon saplings were distributed to the villagers to build a compound boundary of lemon saplings.

�Apart from resisting the elephants, the cultivation of lemons will also ensure additional income for the villagers,� said Gohain.

Rotary Club, Dispur unit has supported some of the initiatives of Wave Ecotourism. Five kgs of yarn have also been distributed to each of the families for weaving gamochas. These gamochas will be sold to tourists.

On the other hand, the village which has no electrification will be illuminated with solar light and the process in that direction has started. The villagers too are upbeat about the flurry of activities in their area. They feel that with solar illumination, proper sanitation and other eco friendly activities, Joramukharia will soon be a familiar name in the tourist circuit.

�Our area has no dearth of beauty. With the necessary promotion, we can become one of the best eco villages in the country,� said Sanjay, a village youth pointing out that even the waterfall in the village has a mesmerizing appeal and in this season, the beauty of the waterfall has heightened.

All the families belong to the Rabha community and their economic condition is very pathetic. But they are open to new ideas that can change their standard of living.
