THE F.A.I.R. SCHEME
To build an agro-based development model that promotes autonomous investments in rural areas. Under this framework, any national citizen either living abroad or within the country is allowed to engage in farming under a contractual basis where the production risks and profits are shared equally by the parties.
What are the primary differences between an urban and a nonurban land? The demographics, economy, and organisation system of the non-urbanism will be elucidated as part of this project. The key points include solutions to circumvent the needs for large scale government investment, micro-grid energy production, novel forms of networking and investment opportunities. Primarily, strengths of existing rural lands will be coded to determine the strategies for prospective investments and growth.
SEED TO STITCH
Identifying the expansion potential of new-age sustainable small weaver's societies, and global appeal of handloom products, the project aims to device a model through which textile products be produced almost entirely within a village. Currently, the process remains extremely reliant on middlemen, thread manufacturers and urban retailers that eat up the junk of the profits. Alternatively, the idea is to build sustainable revenue generation models that explore micro-technologies and prevent exploitation of local artisans and the natural resources in weaving, non-urban societies.

Inspired by traditional water conservation systems that have stood the test of time, this project focuses on designing enhanced soil columns to improve percolation rates of surface water, hence supplementing the amount of ground-water while maintaining or enhancing the quality through the help of mathematical and theoretical modelling.
