HALMA 2023

PARMARTH KI PARAMPARA ~ 25 - 26 February 2023

Halma - The Bhil Tradition

Halma - The Bhil Tradition

Halma is an age old tribal practice of working together to help the ones in need. Whenever any member of the Bhil tribe is in need of help, the village would come together to help the person. People participating in Halma would selflessly help the person without expecting anything in return, and consider it as their duty and culture.

Halma - A Mass Movement for Environment Conservation



The youth and elders together breath a new life to this age –old practice and reinvented it at whole new level to solve the problems being faced by the society. Thus Halma as a movement was born out of tribal people’s concern for Mother Earth.
