The village

Biharipur, India Since 1993, Globe and Mail reporter John Stackhouse has made Biharipur, a small village in Uttar Pradesh, India, a window into the despair and victories of the developing world. He writes of women burying their children, a resourceful Sikh family, a poor but proud father of the bride, brothers who flee to the city, the divisive powers of caste and religion, the trouble a school can bring, and a widow who has no name.
