Wave of Transformation (E)
The film presents the success story of science and technology interventions in North-East India for improving indigenous and traditional water mills called GHARAT and BEEKEEPING. To witness the transformation, a team undertook the journey in a tribal village and documented the saga with a human touch. North-East is known for its unique traditions and cultures as well. Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India launched an initiative to upgrade and improve traditional water mills by appropriate science and technology interventions.
