Where does India live? Gandhi knows it well. He answered this question amid colonial cultural onslaught on our culture in Indian cities on all our behalf long ago. “ India lives in villages.” Answer is relevant even today. Only the question is out of date.
Are Indian villages alive? Perhaps that could be the possible query, a foreign tourist makes, when he visits an Indian village. He can quench his thirst with a bottled soft drink, where village women walk miles together to fetch a pitcher- full of drinking water. If Bapu forgives us, villages die in India.

కలవని కనుపాపలు

రెప్పవాల్చని కన్నుల్లా రెండు బావులు
ఒకటిః మాకు
రెండుః మా వాళ్ళకు
మధ్యలో ముక్కుమీద వేలేసుకున్న రోడ్డు

ఎవడో జల్సారాయుడు
