Harish pandey or harda is one of the thousands of farmers, primarily dependent on farming for his sustenance.
years ago, with a thought to find an alternate means of livelihood, harda bought a commander and started driving on the windy mountain roads as a means of transport for the localites. in a time when this part of the mountains barely had any cabs/jeeps, harda was hopping from one mountain to another hoping to provide a better life to his family.
he would help his family with farming, and also drive around day in and day out. but one fine day he gave up driving.
harda now devotes all of him time to farming. with a family of 5 to take care of there is lot that the land demands from him. his two daughters, two sons and wife equally participate in the efforts.
but there are challenges, and struggles they face on a daily basis. water crisis, wild pigs, low rates for the produce and much more.
but you know what is still the best part?
the affection with which he looks at his crops! .
this may, spend time with us and harda as we go around understanding the farm life in the mountains.
