Re: my experience of development of my village in Santal Pargana division
Dr. Dhuni Soren
Well done Dayanidhi.
It will inspire other people in other villages. But they need enterpreneur like you in every region who can motivate young people in villages and form a cell of few people in every village and start looking after and developing themselves and their areas.I hope your village will help and support neighbouring villages.
With best wishes
This is really great job for the society. Concentrate on your work and doing great for the society with social minded. Wish you best of luck on your endeavour.
I will also add one more point..
Its not enough that the children go beyond high school.. Education is not the end product.. we should focus on how far their education contributes back to their society..
Suppose, if few students get in to engineering, say , CIVIL engineering, they should be able to utilise thier knowledge, in preparing architecture plans for their village to improve infrastructure..
They can prepare layouts and survey their landscape.. and thus they can utilise their knowledge in water conservation through landscaping etc..
Suppose a few students get in to mechanical engineering, they can invent some cost effective machines to ease the burden of the people in his village.. for eg:, we can desing a simple harvestor for rice and maize.. and for peeling coconut.. or a simple machine for weeding.. or they can improve existing farming process for using machineries..
If suppose, few students get in to commerce, they can contribute back by maintaining the finances of the SHG in their village..
Suppose if few students get in to MBA they can prepare business plans for marketing the products in their village to the outside world..
In tribal areas, honey is one of the important product available.. we can train the people in simple methods of honey processing, and teach them about packaging and bottling.. The materials available in the village should come out only as product.. If its Paddy, then all processing should be done locally and should come out as packaged rice.. If its honey, till bottling, the work should be done within the village and only the product should come out for sale..
Thus, if we plan properly, we can uplift the rural villages with people's participation.. the only thing we need to do is to make sure that economy of rural area circulates within them, and not move to cities, as it is happening now..
In the case of IT, i have few plans.. now broadband is available in even rural areas in my place.. and many of the young generations completed engineering, but have to move to big cities like bangalore for jobs.. Almost all the small scale projects can be done in our own place, if we have skills.. So, i plan to train those students right in their college time, with basic skills, and then make them do small commercial web based projects from their home town.. I am training around 4 engineering students, and as a first implementation, i made them do their academic project out of their own.. (normally engineering students pay for the projects to some computer center)..
So, if we think in terms of common man, we can bring about the revolution..
