Nor are there any upscale retail stores selling international brands. Nonetheless, all the popular modern shopping items like jewelries, apparels (for men as well as women) mobiles, foot wears, electronic items, utensils etc are easily available in both these markets.

Here two very unique communities have been living since medieval history and have evolved a unique culture that is only unique to them. These are Gond and Bundelkhandi communities. Every facet of their everyday lives – including way of dressing, cuisine or festival celebration – is still steeped in the historical roots.

It is because of the sheer uniqueness of their culture that we’ve included it in the list of worth doing things.
