Do you ever look at Fevicol and feel grateful for it? Well, Heruli longs for it all year long. During a village walk she showed us the beautiful Ringal products that she makes. While we were appreciating her talent, she said “This is nothing. I can make almost everything- lamp shades, book holders, so many things, if only I had Fevicol.” Due to the difficult trek, she never asks people to bring it for her. The fear of it spilling along the journey or costing a lot bothers her. Seen here is Heruli Devi painting her house during the project.

  • 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.
