• 16. VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT THE PROJECT!!! | Bardzo wazny update o projekcie!!!





Martushka would like to inform all the donors that due to things beside her control she is forced to REDESIGN A LITTLE THE STRUCTURE OF THE PROJECT.

Just yesterday the decision was made that due to the natural disaster, which happened in July in North India, Nanda Devi Raj Yatra is totally cancelled. Here is the link to the biggest Indian newspaper news on this issue:  http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/other-states/nanda-devi-raj-jat-yatra-cancelled/article5023122.ece

Martushka has been currently working on the first part of the project in Nepal, In Syabru Bensi. This part of the project goes really well. Tomorrow in the village we have the opening of the exhibition of the children's works (more info in the next post!)

She also received the information that the local shamans made a decision that this year  they do not go for the celebrations to the Gosaikunda lake but to Langshisha - the heritage place. This kind of yatra happens only once every few years.  There will be local people and shamans (bompo) joining the celebrations. Also some Hindu people will join. 


1. Cancellation of the Raj Yatra in India
2. Establishing very good and in depth relation with the local community
3. Dessicion of the local shamans to change this year the place of the celebration of Janai Purima  


1. The first plan - workshops in collaboration with local community were done as planned and described in the project description. The work with local community will be prolonged and as an additional thing, at least 5 people from the local community will for the next year prepare photo-diary of their life in the village.

2. Instead of going for the Gosaikunda Yatra Martushka will go for Langshisha Yatra - with local people from Syabru, she will document it as she planned to document Gosaikunda Yatra.

3. Martushka will not go to Raj Yatra - since the yatra is no more happening - instead of this during the time I was to be in Raj Yatra she will prepare a set of photographic portraits of local shamans (bompo) here in Nepal, Langtang.

Martushka and her local team are looking forward to this new work within the project and they will be happy to receive any of your comments and feedback!
