Rural Self Development in India: Two Case Studies. A Curriculum Supplement.
Grant, Thomas N.
Case studies of two, successful, rural, self-development programs in India are presented in this document, which is designed to supplement the study of India in the social studies curriculum. After a brief introduction to India's village system, the two projects are discussed. The first case study presents a water collection system in Bagrunda village near Udaipur in the state of Rajasthan. The second case discusses the introduction of sericulture to a farming community near Bangalore, Karnataka. Both cases offer examples of groups of people working together and with others to improve their lives. These examples are offered as a counterpoint to the impression many textbooks leave of Indian villages as places in which persons unbendingly follow tradition and are not open to change. The commentary for a slide presentation, a bibliography, a list of activities, and report topics are also included. (DB)
