This is India, a vast country. I am in southern part of India called Rajahmundry, Andhra Pradesh. This landscape is very fertile as it lies in the Godavari delta. Toddy palms and coconut trees are everywhere. We travelled 130 kms deep into remote area surrounded by forests. This place is called Y. Ramavaram. A church had sponsored our camp. It was a small village. There was a weekly market on that day. The tribals had descended to the marked. I was surprised how much modern life had penetrated into their lives. Almost all the youth were clad in brightly coloured tight jeans and readymade shirts. They carried big mobiles. It didn’t look like a remote area. Everything was available there. What I noticed was that people were lean and bone sturdy. The population was healthy! The camp was well attended and I can say India is rocking even in its villages.
