Off to a village

After the fossil park, now off to a small village in the real interiors of rajasthan.

It's surprising how good the roads are here. It seems the state government and the prime minister's grameen sadak yojna are bearing some fruits.

The villagers cannot really afford vehicles ( I saw 1 bike and 2 tractor total) but when they do, they have a road BETTER than most in Mumbai to take them to the big cities.

At the village we(means my relative who's a banker) talked to them about agri loans and credit stuff.

We got to see a whole panchaayat happening. Very cool. The villagers seemed to know their stuff and had lots of questions.

In the end an understanding was reached and things will improve for them. Awesome.
