PaliGhar - How it began and what we envision
We are the sixth generation of a Nepali family residing in Kalimpong since the early 1900s. Our great grand-father, Shri Bhim Bahadur Pradhan, was entitled the title of Rai Sahib in 1941 by the British Government during their reign in India, for his generosity and rendering support in dire times to the local communities living in and around Kalimpong.
In due respect to his achievements and the respect he earned, we continue to live by his ideologies and philosophies to this day. The family upbringing keeps us intact to our roots which helps pave our path towards serving the society and contributing for a larger cause. Currently, some members of our family are into nature conservation, informal wildlife education, horticulture, formal education while others have ventured into travel, adventure and hospitality. We thus, plan to fuse in our family expertise to bring to you, ‘PaliGhar’.
Through PaliGhar we aim to showcase our love for education, wildlife, conservation, horticulture & floriculture, travel & hospitality and more importantly we work tirelessly to protect our roots - the flavours of Nepali heritage, customs, culture and cuisines.
