Before the country got independence, the number of rural areas in India was four times more than today. The traditions of the village then. The spirit of labor, self-reliance, mutual brotherhood was maintained and there was no feeling of loneliness even in an empty house. Traditional occupation was an honor of trust in farming and the system of forefathers. People used to join each other in their happiness and sorrow, people used to say that India is a country of villages.
Now that round is coming to an end. India is changing. Cities are expanding. Our heritage traditions are coming to an end, convenience has increased in place of labor, and dependence has increased on the event management company instead of self-reliance. The problem of mutual brotherhood is that the neighbor does not even have time to learn about us.
Everybody is in the house, but they are so entangled in the mobile that there is no time to talk to each other, that is, they are far away even by staying close. Farming is now a loss-making business, with labor and labor replacing technical and computer labor. Except for the forefathers, nobody wants to know about his grandfather or Baba.
Although many rural areas still retain the old culture. People respect their society, tradition and their roots. Sarvodaya activist and water warrior Uma Shankar Pandey explains that a village is a body, every village is a puzzle. They say that even today, the village is pure, the talents coming out of the soil of the village have proved their talent in the world. Our roots are the traditional village skills. Life is useful knowledge, there is faith, there are opportunities, if the laborer is hard working, then the village will not let it go hungry, the rural self-reliance scheme made by the ancestors is still intact. Believe that even today the village is pure, the scent of soil, tradition, labor, self-reliance and our own sense of belonging, if you want to see, understand and feel, then walk towards the village. See the mud houses and sit on the rams of the trees, on the banks of the pond, and taste the food made on the stove in the sunlight.
After Swaraj, the development of the village was negligible compared to the cities of India. The rich cities of the city were destroyed. Number of cities increased, villages decreased, generation of youth playing in the soil of the village, industry, politics, media, arts, education, knowledge, science, agriculture, business, medicine, research in all fields in the country Made a place, earned a name, but the soil of the village, which gave strength, gave strength, did not turn around and look at it. Two percent of people will be the exception, except them, the rest have changed.
The village gave us everything, we destroyed it. Even today, in the village, shared culture is the value of life, perhaps with the concept of joint family, the country decided to form self-help groups again. It is not known how much the support groups formed by giving this money to take the place of joint family, even if the world has given these Nobel Prize to these support groups, the family had great importance in building, preserving India’s social values. The village will not let us starve, with the belief that the brave warriors of the country have returned on foot thousands of kilometers during the Corona epidemic.
When the country was slaves, the villages were free, there was no interference in the internal system of the village, Swaraj came, stuck in the metros, there is a danger of protecting her existence in front of the village, the villages that led to Gandhi, Vinoba, Nanaji Narendra towns Had abandoned the comforts of the country and had gone towards the village of the country, called the villages the soul of India, perhaps it would be understandable to see the panchayat house of today’s gram panchayat.
From this panchayat house, the Ganges of village development comes out. The plan is made. How is this house itself, a person of civilized society must once see the panchayat house of his village. The house which distributed toilets, wells, ponds, roads, are built in the entire village, whose current name is the village secretariat, in which the village head secretary will occasionally sit, there is no toilet, no electricity, no furniture, no computer. , No room, how many crores of rupees have been spent in 1 gram panchayat in 70 years, it is not fair to say. There are around three lakh gram panchayats, there are close to six lakh villages. The example is in front of you.
According to Uma Shankar Pandey, the founder of Jalgram Jakhani, except for the 5% exception in the village area in which I live, some villages will have good work done. People who were selected to run the village for 5 years should see their home. Take home the government elder Babu, who is said to be the head of development of the village, still standing. Even today, people are going to share happiness and sorrow in the village.
With this expectation the exhaustion of thousands of kilometers of walking journey ended as soon as it reached the village. After all, why did you run into trouble, because even today the villages are pure. There was electricity in the city, there was water, there was air, there was rest, there was a car, there was a ship, there was no money, but still millions of people ran towards the village. The story of childhood grandparents’ grandparents, the fields will be the barn, the bull, the cart, the plow, the soil will be given, even if there is no oil in the world, India is the only village country in the world.
The hands of the Department of Industries, which patronize traditional and new rural industries, are so small that they cannot reach the village, yet the village is standing but the potter in the village is not the potter’s clay whose touch was prepared to remove darkness. , How long did she fight with a clay bulb, how long she would fight with a clay iron tin, a tile of iron.
The village goldsmith no longer has 16 pure seals, the carpenter has the ability to make plows, bullock carts, but the wood is missing, the school for the children of the village may not have produced the results, but the adult education of the old has made the system Has lit up the house of many people. The literature that gave the village hori, cow dung spring, when will that literature be created today. After all, where did the happiness, peace, food, wealth, Lakshmi of these villages go. The songs of the farmer’s vocals have disappeared, the fun is silent, yet the village is pure.
There is a challenge in front of planners, scientists, administrative reforms, public representatives, whether to move towards the traditional system or decide towards modernity, what we consider the village to be the soul of a unit, group or country. is. The village is a soul, there is a body, there is something in one place in the village, immediately the news spreads to another place, the effect is good or bad. The village is a unit of social culture, the traditional industries of the village have gone into business, how Laxmi lived in the village Saraswati also left the village when Lakshmi went.
In 1920, according to an estimate there were 3 government employees on one lakh people, today there are 3 employees on 100 persons, yet the villages are shaking. In 1920, the price of 1 kg of wheat was one, selling milk ghee was a sin, it must have been poverty, but everyone used to sit together. Where did the 1928 Royal Commission of Agriculture in India report that India’s rural society did not have a tendency to accumulate wealth. This meant the village did not need money. Well the cities are crowded, but everyone is alone there. is not nobody got time. The village is not crowded, but everyone cares for others, is concerned and has a sense of sociality. Nature’s cohabitation is not on the streets of cities, but on the rams of fields.
