We had arranged an educational trip to a place around 52 kms from Pune, named, ‘Morachi Chincholi.’ This trip was arranged for both, MBA-part 1 and MBA-part 2 students and a total of 46 students attended the trip. This trip proved to be very knowledgeable for all the students as they were well educated about the medicinal herbs, their importance in our culture, their importance in the field of Science, how they are commercially sold and what are the home remedies for few skin and hair related issues that we face.
