But after industrialisation they can afford 12 months of food availability without much effort. This is because they now have more money in their hands than before and as such their purchasing power as well as bargaining power has increased.

People - People Relationships People - people relationships relate to the social structure and the interaction between the classes of the society. Here in my area of study i.e. village Kolam there is a class system based on the following: * Upper class or Rich * Middle class or Medium * Lower class or Poor The upper class comprises of people from the upper strata of the caste hierarchy such as the Brahmins and also people who own considerable amount of wealth such as the Brahmins. Here wealth would mean wet land, education level, house type, whether they have jobs or businesses, number of vehicles owned by them, irrigation facilities, health condition, etc. The middle class comprises of the middle strata of the caste hierarchy and people who have marginal land holdings, and vehicles such as motorbike or bicycles, such as the Sidars, Rathiyas, Yadavs, Chouhans and Nais in the village. ...read more.


JSPL started to buy land from the people @ Rs 3.5 Lakhs/ acre. This led many people to sell their land to make a profit of the opportunity as the market price of land at that time was upto Rs 3 Lakhs/ acre. Now they have money but they sold their cultivable land. Some of the coping mechanisms are listed below: * Sale of land in Kolam and purchase of land in nearby villages. * Invested money in banks in Fixed Deposits (FDs) * Purchased cars and using it for rental purpose * Bought water pumps and also to install a bore well near their fields * Bought livestock of the money realized by the sale of their land The challenge faced by them is just their remoteness from the urban area. It is 14 kms away from Tamnar, its development block. After the acquisition of land JSPL walled its boundary with concrete walls making many of the people living on the nearby of the village and of the village to commute in a different route taking a lot more time than before. Many grocery stores which boasted of customers from different nearby villages now don't have their earlier shine. People coming from different villages to the Sunday weekly haat in the village are reducing. As far as opportunities are concerned, Kolam has a great advantage here as the industry is establishing its plant in the village bringing people from different states to this village. * These people need accommodation and people in the village can reap the benefits out of this opportunity by constructing extra rooms in their homes to give it for rent. * People of this village can also benefit from this by installing more grocery stores. There is also scope for other businesses to emerge after the establishment of the plant here. * Also people who own livestock like cows, hens, chickens and goats can reap the benefits of this opportunity by selling milk, chicken, eggs and mutton to the people who work at the plant and also to the nearby villages. ?? ?? ?? ?? 42 ...read more.
