About Vayali

Motto: “Culture nourishes itself from nature.
Without nature, culture cannot exist;
without culture, a society cannot.”

Vayali, a group of young people from the cultural capital of Kerala, is engaged in preserving the roots. Connected together in way back 2004 for a common reason, to form a team to start learning the Traditional / Local Knowledge systems practiced in and around the banks of River Nila (Bharatha Puzha) and share / impart the same to the young generation.
