For two years, at CMC Ludhiana, 1967-68, I helped develop rural medical services and lived in Narangwal. We began to collect artifacts of rural life and agriculture for a museum similar to two in Scotland and one in E. Europe. I congratulate the Punjab Agricultural University has had the foresight and resources to establish it. I have images of the 'green revolution' and traditional rural occupations (weaving, cooking, sugar cane manufacturing) as practiced in the 1960s. I'd be glad to share them. IRL
