Thanks Paul. Small world indeed. The Ekta Parishad railroad sounds like a wonderful ride. I'll definitely get in touch with you/Ramesh if I find myself in India this year. Will you be walking for land rights?

Ah, well I have been traveling around with Ekta for the last year. Ramesh is a good friend! Such a small world. If you are in India you should definitely get on the Ekta Parishad underground railroad (ashrams, organic farms and wonderful people!). I will be there from September to Jan so feel free to get in touch and I will happily connect you. What they have done in terms of grassroots democracy is really unparalleled anywhere that i know of. Keep in touch, Carmen, I will order the book!

Dear Carmen, Your new book looks really good. I am going to order it. I notice you have a picture of the Ekta Parishad women on the cover. Do you know Ekta and their work in India?
