Village school that never opens

india Updated: Sep 03, 2006 13:44 IST

EVEN AFTER six decades of Independence, there is still a village- Musavali in Mehgaon tehsil of Bhind district that is waiting for development. Residents of this village do not know what development means. There is a dilapidated building sporting a huge lock in the name of school and not a single health worker is posted here.

The primary and middle schools open only on August 15 for Independence Day celebrations.  Situated barely 20 kms from the district headquarters, Musavali village is deprived of basic facilities like roads, education, health, power and pure drinking water.

Consequently, the villagers remain cut off from Bhind district headquarters and other places during rains and during the period, when there is standing crop in the fields. Due to extreme backwardness, roads that could be actually used for traffic and transportation, are being used for cultivation.

Collector Rashmi Arun Shami believes that the village has many obstacles, which need to be overcome.
