FARMING CULTURE: I remember meeting Biki on my first trip back to Manipur from NYC. Was that 1985? He was the only guy I met who had actually produced something. He showed me his farm where he made concrete posts. Everyone else seems to leech on memory, bureaucracy, and corruption.
I am glad we had that long heart to heart in Brooklyn last fall. He will be a terrific guy to work with. I like his school idea and offer to give him suggestions and contact on how to realize his dream of an online school. He says he wont work on it if I don’t work with him. I am touched.
Biki can make things happen. He is smart and I am sure his training in linguistics and literature is finding a novel use in his farming!
