Film Screening: Jowar Gatha (The Jowar Ballad)

Indigenous varieties of sorghum and millets, diverse cuisine, interlaced with the traditional practice of farming come alive in Jowar Gatha (The Jowar Ballad). While farmers lament the decline of Jowar (sorghum) and millets due to changing cropping patterns in the drylands of Central India, rich traditions of life around these crops manifest through traces of songs, rituals, and stories.
