Rurality rules

India has a guru -- an intriguing economic one. Professor Anil Gupta of the Indian Institute of Management in Ahmedebad is one of the brains behind the Honeybee Network, “a vast repository of often clever rural inventions and village wisdom about plants and animals in danger of being forgotten in the new brand name-driven India”. The Network gives financial backing to the best ideas.

The knowledge os often collected by a Shodhyatra, a walk to find knowledge, and he is to come to Britain this spring to walk between the old industrial cities of Liverpool and Manchester.
