Encountering Awe-Inspiring Women Passing through the lush greenery, we have reached the skill training centre in Chittaura block in Bahraich district (U.P.).
After attending the orientation program conducted by NRLM, my friend and I went to a nearby village for fieldwork. Tajkhudai village has a significant and equal population of both Hindus and Muslims living in their respective mohallas near to each other. As the road was blocked due to the Eid procession, we had to take a detour – which meant passing through the heart of the Muslim based community. The news flashed in my mind which I heard three days back: a communal riot had happened in another village, Khaira bazaar when Hindus had Chatt pooja ceremonies. We reached the house where all the women were supposed to gather and have a meeting.

But as I learned later, it was not grown or collected, rather purchased by family. The East India company brought clove from its native home in Indonesia to the Company’s spices gardens in India in 1800 AD. In this village, the people settled when displaced during construction of a big dam two decades ago. Professional Development Program - Indian School of Development Management.
