Abstract

“Why would it not rain? What will happen to the birds then?” One child answered indignantly, when I casually asked, “What would happen if it doesn’t rain this year?” I was sitting with the children of Grade VI, from Ananda Niketan school in Sewagram, in front of a plot of land that they had tilled. They had sowed brinjal and okra on this plot, irrigated minimally, and weeded the area. Now, we were waiting for the rains. It was the last week of July, and we hadn’t spotted any dark clouds. The summer had extended over more than two months, and even the leaves on the neem tree had started drying.
