5 Families in a bio valley for Indigo dyes in south India was made to extract natural dye by a dyer family.Wever family tailor family .Wshing family.

They all speicilaist in one skill inherited from traditional training linked by cell and net. They make the Organic Natural Indigo dyed Jeans pants,Yoga- dress and Child-wear . The entire village is using this material and they are catagries some net B2B markettable. It is equal in making to global quality but price wise it works out to rual. It serves a small town and 10 villages since 1984. Safety ,security,healthy working conditon in rural situvation in bio-factory of enzyme fermenting technology is viable one. The resulting economy is real one .The fashion show is village millanium one.

The knowledge and wisdom to do this is net sources by all kids and youths with cell internet.Video operations help them follow the secientific processing tech involved.

Every 10 village one bio-factory is possible . The infrastructure is creatively organised by self help group of women and young girls. Only 5 families are engaged now in this Organic natural cloths making .

Please visit the web site http://www.transindiaexports.net, also see another http://www.thecolours of nature.com. An Spanish textile engineer set it up the model and it is followed by others.

Organising infrasturcture creatively in rural India to re discover true India is possible.
When true information missing accurate data on economy is useless. We as globalised nations are in 1930 real economy. We as globalised economy are in 2010 infalted world junk economy.

If truth is found it need be taken way forward to 3 millaniums situvations and when this way forward must be supported by creative talents . This creative talents can be delibrately trained . Thinking is skill it can be learned .Bono’s training on thinking can come to help here . A business model effective vialble sustainable can give true economy to all third world rural poors.

At the time the government saw mobile as a step to getting communications to the people in a single swoop and bypass landline – I don’t think anyone anticipated the benefits of introducing power to areas, or the opportunities. However, at some point saturation will be reached and the operators seeking other revenue streams.

Having said that the availability of power is one side of the infrastructure equation. The additional Infrastrucuture costs such as Meetering and billing etc will need to be commerically viable for operators. I feel government assistance and grants rather than a phone tax is more likely to accelerate this opportunity.
