Village vignettes - For how long.

"For how long ?"

1. We give our village children milk and ashwagandhadhi. They bounced out of anaemia into good health. They do not fall ill anymore. Friends ask, "For how long will you give ?". As long as we give our own children good food. All children need the same nourishment - and there is no magic one time pill to health. We would be happy to share details with anyone willing to take this on in any village anywhere.

2. The drought continues. The rich urbans need to underwrite the poor farmers. Friends ask "For how long ?". As long, at least, as the urban depends on the farmer to grow his food.
