An Indian landless farmer boy rests before another day's march during the "Jan Satyagraha," near Agra, India. Thousands of poor farmers have ended their march to India's capital after the government agreed to formulate a new reform policy, providing land rights to them and fast tracking settlement of their land disputes. The protesters from nearly a dozen states set out on a 320-kilometer march from the central Indian city of Gwalior nine days ago under the banner of "Ekta Parishad," or "Unity Council," and planned to reach New Delhi at the end of the month.
