- But, then, isn't carrying seeds from one country to another illegal? I
mean, without going through 'proper channels'. I don't think anyone on
this group, not already in India, would like getting caught by the
customs officers at the port of entry in India if there are laws
against bringing in seeds from another country. Make sure about this
before taking such a gift.

The first thing that comes to mind would be a small statue of the
shinto farming god. Remember in one of the books when he talks about
the shinto farming god's strange tool that everyone thought was
something else when it turns it out it was a musical instrument for
playing while letting nature grow the food.
I can't remember more off hand, but that's my vote.
Good idea Bob, as usual.
