The first interview of the series Visit Bastar was with Mayur Thakkar from Jagdalpur.

It has been a huge success, especially on Facebook and I know some of my readers were impatient to read more similar interviews.

 

As I told you in the introduction of the first interview, Chhattisgarh state and its district of Bastar are often kept aside from the classical tourist itineraries in India

The reason is simple: most Indian people think it’s a dangerous place.

And if they don’t think this way, their family will do everything to convince them not to visit Bastar.

 

So today, for the second interview, this is Swayam Tiwari.

And you will see that Swayam also knows that Bastar is totally safe for the travellers.

It was Bilaspur in Chhattisgarh.

Bilaspur is situated between two wildlife sanctuaries: Achanarmak (Amarkantak Hill Range) and Barnawapara.

If you leave aside the Naxalite violence for a moment then Chhattisgarh is the most peaceful place in India.

The Naxalite violence is directed toward the police and the government officers and the ordinary public has nothing to do with it.

The women of Chhattisgarh do not get attacked /raped in the way other states’ women do.

My state is also beautiful in terms of hills, forests and history.

Because the ordinary people do not indulge in large scale violence.

They are satisfied in their needs and respect their women too.

Of course I would feel sad.

Telecommunications.

If you are a single man or woman, then you should marry a person from Bastar. You will go far in life.
