Shagun Singh was a corporate business head. She quit her job in 2015 and moved to Nainital in Uttarakhand. She was looking for a place where she can build a home with her own hands. The idea was to create a magical place where one can grow food, where there is energy, water, and to live as holistically as possible. She found a barren piece of land in Mahrora, a village close to Nainital. Later she started making mud houses and founded a training center called Geeli Mitti. People from different parts of the world come and learn different mud construction techniques here. She emphasizes on the importance of mud over cement.
