Philosophy and guiding principles:
Navneet Maheshwari strongly believes that any industry running without keeping in mind the development of local population and bio diversity is against ethics. According to him responsible tourism is very important and keeping this in mind he has especially developed an Eco resort wherein from construction to running of the project everything is green and Environmental friendly.
He is a Vaishnava, i.e. follower of Vishnu's Avatars as per India philosophy, and believes that all living or non living are one and same having equal importance on mother earth and equal care should be given to all. According to him local tribal culture has many aspects which can teach us how to live especially living with minimum needs . According to him Sustainable way of living should be the guiding principal of life and that we are only care takers for our coming generations. Come Celebrate Nature Celebrate Life: is the guiding principal at the resort. He strongly believes that we should try to learn from nature where nothing goes waste and keeping this in mind we follow the 3R principal of Reduce, Reuse and Re-Cycle.
Guests come to see Tiger and other denizens of the forest kingdom and the best way to do so is by going for a safari. But, here we miss those small creatures of god who at times are so beautiful and colorful that they inspire us in different ways. So we request our guests to miss a safari if possible instead take a nature walk in adjacent forests where forest department has especially developed a nature trek. We request our guests to not to waste electricity, water and other materials. Rather if not required we do not start the generator for even at times of electricity failure instead we try to enjoy nature and bio diversity.
He believes when a person is in the lap of mother nature that is the best time to meditate about self, family, friends, work and our actions. So, meditation, yoga, jungle walks and like activities can be arranged for guests along with massage and simple food to rejuvenate and get back to work with better energy level and clear mind.
Kanha Village Eco Resort has been made with this concept in mind and we try our best to minimize our carbon foot print by using electricity only when needed, trying not to waste, use bio degradable waste for producing manure etc.,We are sure you will like the system and will go back home much happier and rejuvenated.
