A village wizard who solved the nature’s puzzles! – 11
The village got her glory back and this time it’s more charming. I think statistics can speak in a better way:
- In 1990 there were 90 open wells with water at 80-125 feet and now it’s 294 open wells with water at 15-40 feet. While the nearby villagers have to drill around 200 feet for water.
- The ban on grazing increased the production of grass from 200 tons in 1994-95 to more than 5,000 tones in 2001-2002. Likewise, the ban on felling trees has increased the biomass by 900,000 trees. Banning liquor has increased the efficiency of manpower.
- Earlier the milk production was just 150 litres a day. Now, it has touched over 4,000 litres a day.
- Now only three families who live BPL and in 1995, there were 168 BPL.
- In 2013, the village with its 235 families and a overall population of 1,250, had a monthly per capita income Rs 30,000, up from Rs. 830 in 1995, plus it has 60 millionaires.
Devgiri is now spotlessly clean—all without sweepers and planting of over ten lakh trees fueled its languishing bio-diversity. Villagers in Devgiri also decided at their local council meetings to ban the sale of village land to outsiders.
Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you!
