Sunarubasha is a village in the North Tripura district of Tripura state in north-eastern India, about 1 kilometre from Dharmanagar town.

The moment you are near an Indian village, you know in your mind that this isn’t a town or a city… and it isn’t just the size or the population that gives this impression. It is the way village-folk adopt and adapt to changes and evolution. So you find one talking on a mobile phone and yet sitting on a bullock-cart with loads of ‘chara‘ for his buffaloes. You see girls in a foot long “dresses” sharing bawdy jokes and laughing. So villages in India are speeding ahead and yet surrounded by that old-worldly calm that says: ‘I have all the time in the world.’
