Twenty kilometers from the Pakistan border

After meeting with the government officials, I was given a tour of the market. 

Leftover bits

Weighing rice

Indians often do not smile in pictures, so I really like the smile on the guy in the middle

Making repairs in preparation for the year's first harvest

Rice processing facility

Government storage facility

Rotting wheat

Lots of rice to feed some of India's over 1.1 billion people

More rotting wheat. India's Supreme Court ordered the central government to distribute it but I guess it does not look like that happened.

Market sign that I will never be able to read
