"Industry means to exploit the work of others and give them one dollar and make a profit of ten. (But the village men) are a little clever. They would come from the village to the city alone, not with their family. They earn money and send to the family. And whenever they like, they go away. They're not dependent. If you bring the family (to the city), you have to work harder. The village men, they come but they do not bring their family. Family remains in the village. He earns, he lives some way or other and sends money there, and the wife who is intelligent, she accumulates the money and when there is enough money they purchase land. So ... after a few years, when they have got enough land, these men do not come back (to the city.) They produce their own necessities. As soon as they are self-sufficient from the land they do no more work (in the city)." - Conversation, 1977
