    She says on the one hand that there used to be some village(s) in the area where the new residential area has come up and then she also says that there was nothing there as such… so those villagers were **nothing** ? what happened to them once the California returned NRIs built their small California ?

      All cliches in this speech of hers, disappointing from someone whoz from TED… particularly dislike her ‘many indias’ comment;
