  • The Village

    By David Boni

    David was at Purushwadi to shoot for a film on social enterprises and went back with amazing footage. Over the 3 days, we had a mix of torrential rainfall and beautiful sunny blue skies. David has shot films for Manchester United and Andy Murray, and as a photographer and traveler with over 20 years experience, said that Grassroutes villages have some of the most beautiful natural lighting, landscapes, people, and scenery... and that a visit to Purushwadi is very special! We agree!! And invite you to experience some of these amazing moments. The Village showcases some snippets into the lives of the people at Purushwadi and the scenes are typical of a Grassroutes experience.
