*Thanks Jed and Kevin for the responses. The whole basis of putting this
article  was to have this type of dialogue. I am therefore delighted with
the responses.*
*
*
*Yes I think these restaurants will have to take into account the
local milieu and the circumstances. There cannot be one solution to all
areas but I think it can provide great benefits to a large number of rural
poor.*
*
*
*Besides once this concept starts in actual practice then it will evolve
organically.*
*
*
*Thanks again for the feedback.*
*
*
*Kind regards.*
