the nilgiris discovery centre


The Nilgiris Discovery Centre, in association with the Nilgiri Documentation Centre, has been set up by MindEscapes® as a curated experience centre for public viewing. It passes down the 200+ years-old legacy of the Nilgiris to future generations, celebrates the great minds of yester years and brings incredible facets of culture, environment, science and innovation to light. Together, with our members, we will work towards the restoration of the Nilgiris heritage, and oppose the mindless destruction of the Nilgiri mountains in the name of tourism, monoculture, encroachment, urbanization and commercialization.

Project Parivartan

Parivartan is a private village development project that brings on-ground social change by transforming villages in India. It aims at enhancing the quality of life in 100 Indian villages by 2025 through correctional, reformative, professional and business measures and creating self- sustaining models whereby these villages turn into productivity-centers that contribute to the national economy.

FC Bisons

FC Bisons is an A-division football team that brings together footballers in the Nilgiris and gives them training, exposure and a platform to showcase their talents. It molds local sportsmen into game-changing players of great caliber and provides an opportunity to play & compete with state, national and international clubs. It works towards empowering budding players and turning the district into a fully-equipped soccer destination. MindEscapes® has also launched two new Football initiatives - the FC Panthers team for juniors and FC Robins for women.

Hill of Flowers

The Hill of Flowers project, a collaboration between Random Acts of Kindness Forum and MindEscapes®, is a beautiful and impactful initiative that seeks to transform the mountain road in Arakadu village, Nilgiris, with flowers planted all along. This project will not be just a visual treat, but also a recreational area where people can come to walk, bike, picnic, and enjoy nature. The goal is to provide sustainable livelihoods for local women, who will serve as the "Flower Guardians" for the hill, by planting and maintaining the flowers.

Join us in making a difference and contributing to this amazing project that will bring beauty and joy to the community.
