Update No 30-

गूँज के पिछले 17 सालों के काम में हमने एक बात तो अच्छी तरह से जान ली है कि आज के दौर में भी गाँव में जब लोग अपने समाज के लिए काम करते हैं तो उनका जज्बा हम शहरवालों से कहीं बढ़ कर होता है I गूँज के काम से जुड़ कर ना सिर्फ गाँव के जरूरतमंद लोगों के अन्दर दान लेने की प्रवृति कम हो रही है बल्कि लोग अब समाज के लिए अपनी जमीनें तक दान में दे रहे है I खास बात यह है कि यह ऐसे समय में हो...

भारत को नदियों का देश माना जाता है और देश के अनगिनत ग्रामीणों के लिए उन्हें प्रतिदिन पार करना एक रिवाज की तरह है I उड़ीसा के कंधमाल ज़िले के दारिंगवाड़ी ब्लॉक के कुम्भारमुन्दा कॉलोनी के लोग भी इससे अलग नही थे जिन्हें प्रत्येक दिन अपने मूलभूत जरूरतों जैसे बाज़ार, स्कूल, दवाई इत्यादि के लिए रोज़ एक छोटी नदी को पार करना पड़ता था लेकिन बिना किसी पुल की सहायता के इस नदी को पार करना लोगो के...

The world invests in large-scale development programs, but we also need to look towards building the resilience of the...

BUT without a bridge this river also became a source of a lot of day...
