Why study astronomy?
Who has not felt a sense of awe while looking deep into the sky, lit with countless stars on a clear night? Who has not asked themselves if ours is the only planet that supports life? Who has not pondered the nature of the planets, stars, galaxies, and the Universe itself? Astronomy is a science that seeks to explain everything that we observe in the Universe, from the comets and planets in our own solar system to distant galaxies to the echoes of the Big Bang. By studying the cosmos beyond our own planet, we can understand where we came from, where we are going, and how physics works under conditions which are impossible to recreate on Earth. In astronomy, the Universe is our laboratory
About Krishna River Camp :
“Krishna River Camp” and “Athavan- The village stay” is born with the aspiration of the founder “Milan wadkar” to live with the Mother Nature and far from the chaotic city life. This is the ideal plan everyone dreams for, and a quick break over a weekend to savor is a no brainer. Hence we at Krishna River Camp wish to bestow this opportunity to our guest through adventure camping in the midst of their busy schedule. Additionally the scenic beauty of Wai will simultaneously enable them to taste the flavor of rural culture, Dairy Farming, Poultry and Farm activities.
Wai being the hometown of the founder member has always had an emotional attachment. To add, the fort safari expedition by yours truly in the Western Maharashtra covering 8 forts in a week has only supplemented this connect. Wai being a picturesque destination being surrounded by the mountainous Sahyadris ranges and blessed with River Krishna, Dhom Dam and many temples including the Prominent Dholya Ganpati was destined to become our ideal location for a campsite.
Finally we intent to provide a trading platform through the campsite for the local people to sell their agricultural produce and other products (fish, dairy produce, etc) directly to the guest without charging any kind of fees and thereby help eradicate the middleman between the local farmer and guest on our campsite.
