Nischalavalamb Barot, Founder, Maroon Migrates, said, "We believe, Mahatma Gandhi was probably the first 'responsible traveller' who travelled across the country, connected with many communities, walked down many villages, stayed in their homes, tried helping them, solving their problems and also with a minimal impact on the environment. That's what Responsible Tourism is all about."

The objective of this program is to allow people to find various ways of sustainable lifestyle, enjoy the simplicity of Gandhi, experience the virtue of Mahatma, said Barot. "This might change perceptions of the tourist towards life, society and our natural resources. This might also help tourist find peace and satisfaction within," he added.
