Just returned from a weekend in a village on the banks of the Ganges River. We were touring a wonderful girls vocational school for children in the area. The foundation is Pardada-Pardadi & can be visited here:

It was a wonderful trip with much discussion about wealth creation amongst India's poorest rural citizens. I will try to post some thoughts on the experience soon - in the meantime, enjoy this shot from a boat on the Ganga - India's national river - significant for Hindu Religious purposes, and for creating the fertile agricultural plains.
