… everyone in India knows this word. It is the farmers’ harvest festival. It signifies a new beginning. During Sankranti, people welcome God into their homes by decorating the entrances with a rangoli made of flowers or powdered paint pigments. The middle of the rangoli is often decorated with an incense stick stuck into a pile of cow dung.
About us: The association consists of eight full members and we have the option of taking on supporting members. Our shared objective is to help the small farmers in India.
We’re a colourful mixture of people and we don’t belong to any political or religious associations.
We are made up of:
- a nurse
- an actor and qualified farmer
- a secondary school teacher
- a kindergarten teacher
- a human rights activist
- an artist
- a housewife
- a notary assistant
