"When I was young, I had a beautiful rose garden in my parents house. Every time someone visited the village, the relatives would get the person to see 'Champa's rose garden'. When I got married my husband asked what makes you happy and I answered, 'Roses'. He ensured to bring me one from each trek he went for. He passed away a few years ago and yet I see and smell roses when I close my eyes and think of him or my childhood." And to celebrate Champa's story we painted these geometric roses on her house.

  • Project: The Wise Wall Project is an initiative by Project FUEL and FUEL Foundation to document the rural wisdom of our villages and celebrate it through art murals. The initiative transforms villages into living classrooms, turning the walls of the same onto blackboards and canvases that uncover striking yet simple life learnings. The project aims to ignite a movement of transforming the long forgotten villages into open-air galleries, exhibiting human wisdom for anyone and everyone in the world to see and benefit from. In the second edition of the Wise Wall Project, Project FUEL collaborated with the Hans Foundation to collect and paint the life lessons of the villagers of Khati. Khati has now become the second village after Saur, in the recent history to have a documented database of life lessons from an entire community. And as wishful as it gets, the village has now been transformed into a living storybook that tells the tales of Khati, like never before.
