“My life lesson for the people of Khati is to never stop growing potatoes. It is with this crop that we have survived and prospered for years on. Khati only grew potatoes and beans at one point. And the same would be bartered with other eatables."
– Revati Devi, 75 Seen here is a portrait of Revati Devi, along with a mound of potatoes, inspired from her life lesson.

  • 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.
