How it happened?
Entire village waited for government to make the road at least drivable. After waiting for years and bus service for the village is stopped because of pathetic condition of the road, activists of BMS (Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh), along with like minded youth, Villagers, didn’t sit idle blaming the government. They decided to do their bit of service with the spirit. After working in the weekend in a heavy rainy day, they were successful in making the road good enough for bus transport. BMS was successful to make a social reform again.
Sadashiva, a BMS leader donated 6 full trucks loads of manually polished stones to reconstruct the road from his stone mine. Other BMS volunteers joined the process, ended successfully to reframe the road, now at least for the basic transport.
“We do not expect any publicity or recognition for our service. It is our duty as organisation to serve the nation in a way that we can. We have done many such activities as “Shramadan” in the past and we are proud about it”, says RameshKrishnan, a BMS worker. Villagers, Bus owners congratulated the efforts of these youth for their self-less service amidst drenching rain.
