In the colonial history of India, Indigo had become the infamous crop, the desire for which led to the opression of countless farmers. It was also the crop that ultimately led to the country's first ever non-violent revolt, that brought together farmers across all the Indigo states. Today, the story is much different. The Himlayan Indigo is a project of empowerment. Indigo, like in the ancient times, is once again a respectable crop that is slowly leading to the properity of the people who cultivate it and the land that it is grown in.
