NARANPUR EXPRESS – The Livelihoods Game
"Remember Red, Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things and no good thing ever dies" – The Shawshank Redemption
Hope is sometimes the only asset the rural poor has and survival, their only motto.

Naranpur express, a simulation game developed by the faculty of IRMA, is based on the Naranpur village in Sabarkantha district (Gujarat). Set in a rural backdrop, it takes the participants through the most important facets of decision-making and problem-solving a rural household has to experience every day. The decision-making process of the small and marginal farmers, the influence of the decisions taken by large farmers on the fortunes of small farmers and landless labourers, and the effects of interventions such as IRDP, MNREGA, etc form the crux of Naranpur Express. Challenges posed by issues related to risk management, resource allocation, information asymmetry and ethical dilemmas of a rural household have been incorporated in the game.

Do you think you can fit into the shoes of a rural farmer of Naranpur? Only that he might not have a pair.
