Village - a deeply cultured place


This is Culture

Space for all ... the deaf and the dumb

Raa, koorcho, annam thinnu  

Hospitality to an enemy or to a stranger ...  

Village Religiousness - Go Seva

Generosity through Droughts

Village Hospitality 

Gifts in a Village

The Gift of Bangles

Lessons from Eashwaramma

Sense and Sensibility

A Simple Hospitality

The Bus Driver and the SI s cap


Simplicity is Culture

Small hotels

The Bangle Seller

The Village Realities

But understanding a village takes a long time.  

The village women are liberated

Is caste an issue (1)? 

Is caste an issue (2) ? 

Questions on caste and education and occupation 

Madhyasthams are khap panchayats

The heart of India, and Babri masjid, and the value of the word.
