I’m backpacking India alone right now and found out about this remote ancient village called Malana, where the locals grow ganja (marijuana/weed) and turn it into their famous charas called Malana Cream(a potent hash/hashish).
“What most people don’t realise (including myself when I visited Malana) is the effect of our presence in lands that were previously isolated. In Malana, it is the slow death of their culture in front of their eyes when they allow us in. It is the river of plastic that snakes behind their houses and grows larger and larger until one day the whole village may drown in it. It is the petrified mothers who cling to their children with their gaze averted upon sighting us. It is the reduction of their existence to merely our touristic experience.”
