The Kadars are a tribal community of India, who live in the southern parts of the Western Ghats, viz. in the Anaimalai Hills of South India. They were traditionally nomadic hunter-gatherers, whose home was the forest.

Thus, they are an integral part of these areas and have also worked on the restoration of these forests.

Manish Chandi, who has worked with this community and has co-authored the books, Walking is a Way of Knowing and Speaking To an Elephant, along with Madhuri Ramesh, will speak about his experiences as well as these books during the event at the Champaca Bookstore.
