Baba Indergit Singh, a Sikh priest who was chosen to come and run the first Sikh temple in Georgia, says prayers as dusk approaches. He arrived in Georgia in August 2012 and lives in this shed on the site where the temple will be built. Georgia has seen its agricultural production drop in recent years and now imports 70% of its foodstuffs. In an attempt to stimulate agricultural production the government has encouraged immigration of people with agricultural skills. Since 2012 more than 2,000 migrants have come from the Indian state of Punjab, attracted by fertile land selling for around $1,000 - $1,500 per hectare, a fraction of the cost in India.
