Narasimha Hegde writes about how people from different backgrounds and communities are coming together to save and sow certain kinds of fruit species in a village in Sirsi.

“For the first time, women in our village from different ethnic groups decided to form a women’s group called Matrabhoomi (mothers’ land) and started producing kokum juice concentrate. This with great success, as the first batch of 350 litres was well received by shopkeepers as a natural product of high quality.
