Wedding bells finally ring in newly-electrified Rajasthan village

first_imgWedding bells rang for 19-year-old Urmila in the nondescript Rajghat village of Rajasthan’s Dholpur district earlier this month, on the day the villagers cast their votes for Lok Sabha election, shortly after electricity reached the village. The small village with a population of 350 had been living in darkness since Independence.The village, which shares its name with Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial Rajghat in Delhi, falls in the Chambal river basin region on the Rajashan-Madhya Pradesh border, which is a forest area. Because of the technical glitch of its location within the Municipal Council’s jurisdiction, the rural settlement was deprived of the benefits of schemes designed for panchayats.Electricity has arrived in Rajghat through a transformer installed by the State government after sustained efforts of a medical student and his friends, who have launched a campaign for improving the living conditions of villagers for the last four years with the help of donors and crowdfunding. The group also undertook a social media drive with hashtag #SaveRajghat.Urmila’s wedding took place after sunset on May 6 and a feast was given to the villagers and the baraat (marriage party), belonging to Agra district, for the first time in the midst of lights all around them. The poor villagers rejoiced at the ceremony, as the power discom officials promised to lay the lines to connect all the 39 households in the village with electricity supply.Crusader’s effortsSituated on the banks of Chambal river, barely five km away from Dholpur town, the small and dusty Rajghat village has no roads, water pipelines or basic medical facilities. The lone government primary school has only a few students. Ashwani Parashar, an MBBS student in Sawai Man Singh Government Medical College in Jaipur and a native of Dholpur, took up the task in 2015 along with his fellow students to provide basic amenities to the villagers.During the last four years, a kuchcha access road and community toilets were constructed, solar lamps supplied and reverse osmosis water filters installed with the help of donors. The power connection is the latest achievement of the group of students, who have also distributed utility items and clothes among the poor in the village.The villagers living in the vicinity of the river still have no access to clean drinking water. Urmila’s father Deendayal Nishad told The Hindu on Monday that the villagers bring polluted water directly from Chambal, where animal carcasses can be seen floating, and clean it with the help of filters. Though girls from Rajghat are married off to other places, the boys face difficulty in getting married, as no parents are willing to marry their daughters in the village because of its pathetic state. In May last year, when Pawan Kumar, 23, got married in Rajghat, the villagers were witnessing such a wedding after a gap of 22 years.last_img read more

Ryan Pini of Papua New Guinea and Antony James of England dead- heated for silver.”Words can’t describe how I feel.I’ve finally put together the perfect race,” Huegill said. “The last time I swam that quickly was 10 years ago.

Glenn Snyders of New Zealand and Brenton Rickard each finished in 27.67 to share silver medals.This was South Africa’s sixth gold medal of the meet, a Commonwealth Games best for the republic.In one of the most exciting races of the meet, Australian Meagen Nay overtook England’s Elizabeth Simmons, who had led nearly all of the race, in the final metre to win gold in the 200m backstroke.Nay finished in 2: 07: 56 and Simmons in 2: 07: 90, while Australian Emily Seebohm won the bronze.Liam Tancock and Rebecca Adlington of England broke the Australian dominance. Tancock won the 100 backstroke in 53.59, followed by Daniel Bell of New Zealand and Ashley Delaney of Australia.

Asian Games: Rowers scoop two silver as India pick up three medals

first_imgThe rowers provided an unexpected boost to India’s medal hunt in the 16th Asian Games with two silver medals but poor form continued to haunt the fancied shooters with Gagang Narang flopping yet again on the sixth day of competitions in Guangzhou on Thursday. MEDAL TALLYApart from the silver-winning feat of the rowers, shooter Vijay Kumar bagged a bronze medal and Paramjeet Samota assured himself of at least a bronze after punching his way into the semifinals of super heavyweight on yet another mediocre day for India’s large contingent.With the addition of two silvers and a bronze, India took their medals tally to one gold, seven silver and eight bronze but the failure to win the coveted gold has resulted in a continuous slide in the position on the table in the last few days.Tennis star Sania Mirza had a trouble-free day as she sailed into the pre-quarterfinals of the women’s singles with a straight-set demolition of Hong Kong’s Chan Wing Yau Venise while the racqueters got off to a good start with both men’s and women’s team progressing to the quarterfinals of the squash singles event.On the gloomier side, the Indian challenge in table tennis ended with Achanta Sharath Kamal and Anthony Amalraj bowing out in the pre quarterfinals of the men’s singles event. It was a similar story in men’s singles badminton with Arvind Bhatt crashing out out in the pre-quarterfinals.It was the men’s rowing four team of Anil Kumar, Saji Thomas, Ranjit Singh and Jenil Krishnan which began the silver collection as they completed the distance of 2000m in 6:16.79, behind China (6:06.40). Uzbekistan won bronze with a timing of 6:22.70.advertisementIn the men’s lightweight four event final, the Indian quartet of Lokesh Kumar, Manjeet Singh, Rajesh Kumar Yadav and Satish Joshi finished second with a timing of 6:13.32, behind Japan who clocked 6:10.14. Hong Kong won the bronze, clocking 6:14.84.After three barren days at the Aoti shooting range, Vijay Kumar notched up his second and India’s fifth medal in shooting by bagging a bronze in men’s 25m center fire pistol but Commonwealth Games hero Narang missed out on a bronze by a whisker in 50m rifle 3 positions.Vijay shot 583 (290+293) to finish third behind South Korea’s Park Byung Taek who scored 586 (290+296) and Liu Yadong of China who fired 585 (290+295).last_img read more
