Roots and Leisure is an online community that keeps you connected to all things Northeast (India). Get a first-hand experience of the “Northeastern Way of Life” through conversations with our local entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, creators, and all the interesting folks. While you are here, do check out our online marketplace where you can buy handmade local items ( food, fashion, crafts – and pre-loved fashion) from our community folks.

Join us in our fun leisure chats around our hobbies, food (recipes!), music, fashion, local hangout places, and our passion ventures. We also extend a warm welcome to everyone across the globe to join the conversations! 


The R&L Community

It all started over a cup of coffee and talking about all the cool folks from Northeast India – whose stories and talents deserved more attention. The year was 2016. We felt it would be a great idea to put up a blog and do our bit to promote our people – and culture – one story at a time. So here we are today, with 100s of stories, and a priceless community of inspirational folks – coming together as role models, cheerleaders, contributors, and community managers.

We are also extremely grateful and overwhelmed by the support received by readers across India – and globally, who have not only cheered on, but also shared their equally interesting cultures through their own stories and crafts. 

Check out our Culture section to explore, and meet the community folks on our Instagram and Facebook pages. We also help our R&L folks exchange (Buy & Sell) their creations and services through our ONLINE MARKETPLACE.
