    I am especially romantic about the kibbutzim of Israel. Israel as a whole is one of the world?s heroic nations. Progress of the Hebrew culture and Israel?s resurgence are rooted in the kibbutzim. Being in a kibbutz is having a very good exposure to Israeli culture. Cultural experience of a country amounts to learn the most important aspect of human life of that country. A kibbutz provides country-style experience. A kibbutz is a communal farm. Rather much more than that. A kibbutz is a true representative of Israel?s culture. I came to know about Israel?s kibbutzim only in 2008 when I went through the celebrated Eco-philosopher Henryk Skolimowski?s autobiography The Lotus and the Mud: Autobiography of a Philosopher. The Study Centre of the Galillee College is lodged in a kibbutz?Kibbutz Mizra. I stayed in the hotel of this kibbutz. A kibbutz comes into picture almost everywhere in Israel. When on excursion, the guide would talk about every kibbutz on the way. Prof. Dr. Vir Singh
