Getting the peasant's pulse...

Kohima: The Vismay Swaraj Yatra team has been exhibiting unusual remorse and resolve to ensure that their mission reaches as many villages as possible. Even as the distance remains unlimited and the time available has been a precise 60 days, they endeavour to perform at the grass roots. Keeping aside all formalities, they transform farms, shops and markets into magic stages. The response has been amazing. “Even the illiterate easily comprehends what is being told in the language of magic”, says magician Gopinath Muthukad. Still, he was disappointed twice: first when farmers along the Bangladesh border failed to identify the National Flag of India and second, when children of Nagaland remained ingnorant of the need for honouring the National Anthem by standing up.
