The lush green fields of our farm
We have grown abundant Wheat, Rice, Corn & sugar-cane in these fields and sometimes given the produce to the local peasants for free Myself standing by the hills; on the outer perimeter of our farm boundary, in 'Mallehpur', Monghyr(district), BIHAR. Presently our farm needs capital investment; ( a new Tractor-trailer, an alumunium grain silo, fencing of the property perimeter, organic fertilizers, ) due to years of neglect ! 200 acres is all, that is left of my great Grand-fathers, once thriving 'Agricultural-farm' ( Some of the property was sold; some donated during the 'Famine years', by my great Grand Father to the poor peasants & the rest reclaimed by the State of Bihar for various devolopment projects ) Myself standing on the slope of the hill; overlooking the banks of River 'Quil', Mallehpur, Monghyr, North Bihar Up in the hills; by the newly constructed reservoir/dam in Mallehpur, North Bihar

The front of our house; with a local peasant caretaker in Mallehpur, Monghyr(district), North Bihar. Some of the poor peasant workers who work for us on the farm. They constitute almost 60 % of the entire population in rural India. India is still a poor, developing country. Until these peasants improve their standard of living; India shall remain poor. My dream is that someday, these peasants wear pants, shirts & shoes; live in brick houses with electricity & electric appliances; and have a scooter for transportation Mom, visiting with the peasants Mom, visiting with the peasants  TONGA; The mule buggy
