Saifai vs Lucknow: A tale of two Mahotsavas

SEEING IS believing. A mahotsav like Saifai?s, as they say, can never be gauged in proxy. Apart from being one of the biggest marketing exercises rural India can flaunt, the mahotsava pips all other major UP festivals, including the Lucknow Mahotsava, by its sheer magnitude, pomp and show.

Pages from Bundelkhand diary

STORIES ABOUT Bundelkhand farmers taking loans again and again to survive droughts are not new. What is new is that both banks and moneylenders have started avoiding lending money to farmers. The bankers know that in the present situation lending money to farmers is not good business sense. To top it all, no government aid is coming their way. How can government aid come to the region when official records rule out drought in Bundelkhand.

Death of a legend

ON THE way to Khajuraho, 24 kilometres from Jhansi, is Baruasagar. Now, in a way, no more. It died this year. For outsiders, it was a tourist spot and pilgrimage, for people of the Baruasagar area, a lifeline. When this correspondent visited the lake in 2000, standing on top of its dam wall, there was only water as far as the eyes could see. So loud was the sound of gushing water from the overflow point that two people standing within an earshot would not hear each other shouting at the top of their voices.

Will Bundelkhand make it?

THE CRISIS-ridden Bundelkhand region has got both a bad (as if it had any less) and a good thing going. Good thing first: One can see a growing resolve among its farmers to rise from their ashes and wage a united fight against all that is behind their ordeal. And the bad: According to observers, rising frustration and fast waning patience may force the people of the affected region to take up arms.

RTI power lifts veil off suicide ?epidemic?

Bundelkhand is UP?s Vidharba, perhaps more. Here too scores of farmers have committed suicide either due to extreme poverty or rising debts. But there is still nothing official about it as the officialdom obviously wants the reasons for the deaths to remain in the realm of darkness. So, it conveniently avoids attributing the deaths to crop failure, hunger, debt or drought.
