    India is full of diverse cultures, traditions, and heritage. While we know many places that glorify India’s vast culture, there are some we don’t know much about. One such place is Malana. The heaven for charas lovers and unbelievable to many others.

    Located near the northeast of Kullu Valley in Himachal Pradesh, the small village of Malana is isolated from the rest of the world. Known as the village of taboos, Malana has so many secrets that make the place the hot spot amongst tourists.

    Discover in this story what a wonderful place Malana is and the odd rituals that are followed by people of this place.

    Strange Rituals of Malana

    The culture of Malana is very enigmatic, their customs are different from traditional ones in India. In Fact, it is the only place in the country where Indians itself are looked down upon and frowned at.

    Their Source of Income - Hashish
    One of the oldest democracies is also known for its drug mafia and cartels. Cannabis is grown on huge farms across mountains. It is exported at high prices and is also distributed in the country with youngsters taking pride in being part of the culture. It is the main source of income for the Malanese.

    Anybody who comes from outside of their village has to follow certain rules in their village and they are very stern about that.

    1. Visitors must stick to the paths prescribed for outsiders and not touch any of the walls, houses, people and the things there. If one does go beyond that they have to pay fine that covers the slaughter of a lamb to purify the place once again. Besides all the abuses they hurl at you for doing the same.

    2. Malanese people do not accept food cooked by an outsider.

    3. However, they can cook and offer food to visitors as long the utensils go through a sanitization process afterward.

    4. They do not allow any outsiders to touch the cannabis plants or rub them to extract hashish.

    5. They are very protective of their women and do not allow anyone to come close to them, else the consequences are extreme, like using blades and knives to hurt the person who harmed the woman in any way.

    6. They love getting electronics since there aren't many in the hills, so if you bring them a new phone, speaker or a useful device they will appreciate your effort and do much in return.

    Secret About Native Language

    The local language of Malana - ‘Kanashi’ - does not sound like any of the dialects spoken in its neighboring villages. Also, this language is considered to be one of the secrets of the village that outsiders from other villages are not allowed to use.

    The Malanese God

    Although, all Malanese worship Lord Shiva, their main God is Jamlu Rishi, who is said to have formed their democracy, one of the oldest in the world. Jamlu is being worshipped by people here since pre-Aryan times.
