Isoti, Uttarakhand, l-Indja

Village Isoti was established over ten generations ago by two Istwal brothers from Village Naukhandi, who moved to the present location and established the village. The village is located midway to the top of Ameli Parwat, arguably the highest feature in Chaundkot and its boundary is spread over a vast tract of land.
Over the years other castes joined the village and as of date the village is a healthy mix of various castes living together in peace and harmony. The once thriving and prosperous village however has been deeply afflicted by migration and is now trying to slowly revive itself and claw it’s way back to former glory.
The village folk inhabiting Isoti are gentle, warm and industrious with exceptionally large hearts. The bulk of inhabitants are farmers who practice natural agriculture and grow traditional crops like Mandwa, Zangura, Sarson haldi etc for primarily their own consumption. They live a frugal and eminently simple life, toiling hard all through the year to make their ends meet. The village folk are deeply religious and celebrate their traditional festivals and occasions with customary gaiety and enthusiasm.
Isoti is a beautiful village blessed with abundance of natural beauty and natural resources. It overlooks a mesmerizing green valley. The village has a perennial natural spring and a seasonal rivulet also meanders close to the village. The Himalayan sunsets one witnesses at Isoti are truly spellbinding and awe inspiring.
Isoti is home to the Non Profit Organization called 'The Dagdiya Foundation'. Dagdiya means a friend or a companion in the local lingo and the Non Profit is actively working towards Women empowerment and Youth mobilization. You can find more about the Dagdiya Foundation by looking it up on Social Media under #bemydagdiya

I am a perfectionist with 38 years of journey in retail finance, insurance, real estate, homestays & apiary. I have been through 21 vocations along with my wife Alka who stood by my values, passions and commitment towards integrity & perfection. I visited Australia (1997) as an “Ambassador of Goodwill, Peace & Understanding”, proudly carrying the Indian Tricolor. Over 20 Australian families across Northern Territory & Queensland hosted me with a world of warmth and care. Now as an Airbnb host, I want my guests to enjoy the exceptional hospitality that had enriched my beliefs, giving my guests the amazing “MY Home” feeling during their stay. Our Indian joint family consists of my parents, my two married brothers and a total of six wonderful children in the extended family. The Family is blessed with a wonderful Daughter-in-law, and TWO Son-in-Laws as well. The family is spread over, Bandar Seri Begawan-Brunei, Alberta & Vancouver-Canada, Kochi, Bengaluru, Vadodara & New Delhi, pursuing different passions. I am an avid motor-biker and have done several trips across states such as Dehradun-Rann of Kutch, (1988), INDO Tibetan Border Police Awareness Trail: New Delhi-Neeti Pass, Uttarakhand (2003). I once, did & survived, a "Hands- OFF" trip on Bike (1989) from Mussoorie to Rajpur, Dehradun, one of the many crazy thing that i have done in life. Age is just a number as my last trip affirmed. I did a SOLO Motorcycle trip from Bengaluru to Dehradun in March 2017 covering 2360 km across 10 states. My prominent car trips took me from Dehradun to Jaisalmer, Leh-Ladakh, Mumbai & Kochi (Kerala). Though I have traveled to Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore & Brunei in South-East Asia besides my trip to Cairo, If you are travelling by road, you are living your life. I have been a voracious reader of English fiction and Hindi writers as well. Western and War movies are my favourite. Interaction with fellow human beings is the source of my energy. Airbnb and Homestay in particular, has brought life back into our lives. I'm a firm believer in Karma. Palmistry, Astrology. God & Spiritualism fascinate me.
