Our country will surpass every hurdle if such ideas emerge every now and then.
The residents of Bancha located in Betul, are now experiencing a big development which has benefitted 75 households in the village. They no more chop trees to obtain wood and light up their stoves because they have now got access to solar power to cook their meals. And this change was possible because of the Central government and the students of IIT Bombay.
A team of students from the prestigious institution developed a special solar stove and the Central government decided to implement the project in Bancha.
Activist Mohan Nagar told ANI that the project was commenced in September 2017 and it was completed by December 2018.
Jamuna Bai, a resident of the village told the news agency how difficult their days were earlier as she said: “Earlier our eyes used to burn while cooking meals, it was due to all the smoke. Our children too had to be sent to jungles instead of schools but the situation has changed now. We all get time for ourselves and the kids can study now.”
The installation of solar power plates has mended the lives of several villagers in Bancha. Our country will surpass every hurdle if such ideas emerge every now and then.
