Once upon a time, two brothers who lived on adjoining farms fell into a conflict. It was the first serious rift in the 40 years of their farming side by side, sharing machinery, and trading labour and goods. Post rift, the long collaboration fell apart. It began with a small misunderstanding and grew into a major difference, and finally, exploded into an exchange of bitter words, followed by weeks of silence. read more

  • 8th National Biennial Grassroots Innovation Awards
Walking in a tribal region having one of the highest educational coverage and attainment in the country was a revealing experience. Though at a geographically disadvantaged location, Tripura beat Kerala in literacy percentage in 2013. It is not surprising that numerous private schools open in summer for children. But, significant poverty still characterises the Gandachal region of Tripura. Located on the border of Bangladesh, the region seems peaceful. Though, it has a history of social protests. The shodhyatris observed the traditional handlooms, crop varieties, musical instruments, and experienced a pervasive culture of sharing values and a warm hospitality. Women here weave colours in their foldable handlooms as also in life while the younger generation has learnt the art of fusing traditional and contemporary designs. Children, as always, amased us by their unbound imagination to solve problems. Culturally rich, managing local knowledge so well, the Chakma, Tripura, Riang and other communities are asserting their identity. We have to join hands with them to collaboratively discover new paths that don’t exacerbate their exploitation and instead enhance their access to modern institutions and technologies. read more

After winning serveral archery contests, the young and rather boastful champion challenged a zen master who was renowned for his skill as an archer. The young man demonstrated remarkable technical proficiency when he hit a distant buils eye on his first try, and then split that arrow with his second shot. read more

The Honey Bee Network has received support from thousands of volunteers over the last two and half a decade while pooling and sharing its ideas, innovations and initiatives through this newsletter. It is difficult to acknowledge all of them. No matter how hard we try, some will certainty be left out. We request all such colleagues to forgive our acts of commission and omission and accept that the Network could not have made all the progress that it has without your unstinted help, guidance and criticism. read more
