Kolkata : The West Bengal Government is promoting homestay 
in the Adivasi-populated villages in the Ayodhya Hills in Purulia 
district. 


 

The first such project is being implemented in Punia Sasan village in 
Baghmundi block.
Over the last few years, it is being seen that more and more people are 
visiting the verdant Ayodhya Hills, especially in winter. Since it is difficult 
and not environment-friendly to construct too many resorts in ecologically 
fragile areas, the government has come up with this measure to 
accommodate tourists.
These home stays would also give the Adivasi villagers, most of whom 
are poor, an additional source of income. The Adivasi villagers who would 
be running these home stays are being given training for the purpose.
Being the original inhabitants of the land, the Adivasis are intimately 
acquainted with the history, and folk culture and literature of the region. 
Hence, they can be the guides for tourists flocking the region.
Staying in home stays would also give tourists a feel of Adivasi life. (UNI)
