Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the existing tensions between hosts and clients, youth and an older generation as they attempt to negotiate changing relations in their struggles to survive and prosper. The first part of the chapter examines existing tensions between hosts and clients as a result of the reluctance of the former to set up a communal garden. The second part of the chapter examines changing agrarian relations between older and younger generations as increasing numbers of young women and girls are being educated and moving out of farming. As children go to school in greater numbers, and a younger generation refuses to farm, the female hosts of Suma Kunda are increasingly having to rely on their clients to work and preserve their land.
