    Fascinating story! At the bottom of that "The Better India" page is a link to another story about a different farmer (I THINK) also experimenting with FW pearl cultivation in India.

    That's really interesting and quite an accomplishment for the young man. I wish they showed more photos of his pearls. The one in the photo was very pink and pretty!
