In that massive river of time, each of humanity’s great civilizations becomes a confluence that ebbs, wanes, and sometimes ebbs again, each a separate current in a river that inexorably rages down to the mouth of the present day.

Although certainly not modern, the Histomap is still a breathtaking example of good infographic design: A five-foot, roll-up chart that can fit an overview of human history on any wall. Starting in 2000 B.C. with seven different civilizations--the Aegeans, the Egyptians, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Iranians, the Indians, the Huns, and the Chinese--you travel forward or backward in time as your eyes move up or down 0.75 inches. Some civilizations bleed together, others are swallowed up; some surge, others crash...

Brides on sale, for cash and cattle - The Times of India

In districts like Ashoknagar and Guna, where men far outnumber women probably due to female feticide, grooms are turning to human traffickers to find a wife.
Brian Sullivan's insight:

Brides are being bought in Madhya Pradesh - sometimes in exchange for a buffalo and some cash. It might have sounded bizarre had there not been such a tragic tinge to it .

"The girls are mostly from poor families and slum areas and the buyers keep them as wives. So the girls don't complain. There is a very dense network of these agents and there are at least two in every tehsil," claimed Pardi.

On Voluntourism

On Voluntourism | Madhya Pradesh Tourism | Scoop.it
Blog post at Africa on the Blog : [caption id=
Brian Sullivan's insight:

While my focus is on eco tourism directed toward Madhya Pradesh 20% Tribal population. Tourism may particulalrly help develop cottage industries helping raise self sufficiency.

There are lessons that may be applicable from Africa:

Volunteer Tpurism has one a lot of good there. However, it can also encourage a sense of dependency on recipients that perhaps gives a Western tourist a spritual high while not addressing the real problem.

 

What do you think? How should India respond?
