    Good Photos.

    The intention of Sainath the creator of this website was to highlight the beauty of Rural India and some of  the unique practices of Tribals. In Kerala, a tribe called 'Khalasis'were building ships since generations, without using any modern equipment like cranes. A tribe in Assam till the land with their legs. One can find many such interesting things  related to rural India in this site.

    Life in rural area is much hard in India. It is right that rural and urban area is equally important. But focus of most of governments are urban area. It is reason that most of village have not electricity, pure water, transport facilities, education facilities and health facllities.

    The splendor of rural India is only limited to photos and vedeos. In reality life is harsh.

    Sadly Kalyani most of it is going , remember I had written about it a couple of years ago . The corporation is taking it over to build of all the things a bus stand since they could not find any other vast stretch of land that is just outside the city. Most farmers have either sold their fields or converted it into house sites.

    We will have to hand it over once they send the notice and give compensation..we have appealed but I doubt it would yield any results.

    Oh, that is really sad. I guess it is the same story everywhere in India. Development at the cost of loss of natural beauty, which is irreplaceable and irrevocable, but no one is least bit concerned about not making up for it or even seek other alternatives.
