No rains, farmers not started rice transplanting yet, worried for future...

Aparna Marandi from Pritand block of Giridih district in Jharkhand is telling us that there was no rain in the block this year so far and farmers have not even started rice transplanting and are very worried. She says in this block there is no irrigation facility and people migrate in search of work after 5/6 months which agriculture can sustain them. But in future if government created ponds and wells and made sure people get irrigation from these facilities then they can get two crops and they will not have to migrate.

NREGA work on 2 ponds started in my village last year, None completed

Aparna Marandi from Giridih district of Jharkhand says in her village last year under NREGA work had started for making two ponds but after a year both remain incomplete and are not giving any help to any one. She says this is another example of faulty development projects. In future there should be rigorous checks in development works and the planning should be such that it helps maximum people. In this case the ponds should have been dug in a place where water can hold and there should also be a pump for taking water to farmer’s field. For more Aparna ji can be reached at 09771949885

We have got electricity. But electricity never comes in the night...

Simga Gram Panchayat in Tirdah block of Giridih district in Jharkhand is a remote area surrounded by hills and forests. Aparna Marandi is visiting there today and tells us that thanks to Rajiv Gandhi rural electrification mission villagers have got electricity around 6 months back but the electricity never comes in the night.
