Lighted up from Kashmir to Bihar
In a village in Kashmir near the LoC, Mohammad Chacha got old while looking for electricity. Shamima’s age of reading has passed, but girls like Tahira and Rifat are fortunate that they are studying under the light of a bulb. In Motihari, Bihar, the family of laborer Sukhi Sahni still lives in a hut, but fortunately, the electric bulb is burning. The fan is blowing air. Children are watching a movie on TV.

Access to electricity made people’s lives easier
For the first time after India’s independence in the year 1947, electric wires reached Chautali village of Boniyar tehsil of Baramulla district. Only a year after the abrogation of Article 370, electricity came to Chautali village and after that the lives of the people changed. Not only in terms of studies, but cooking in the kitchen room also became easy.
Village near LoC had to wait 74 years
Imagine, the village which is very close to the LoC. Along with security, there should also be a system of basic facilities. This should be the priority of every government. Had the earlier governments paid attention, the people of Chautali village would not have had to wait for electricity for 74 years.
Electricity also reached the villages of Bihar
There are still many families in Pakariya village of Motihari, who do not have a pucca roof. There is a hut in the name of housing, but electric wires have reached these houses as well. Dhaniya Devi says that till a year ago, one had to go to the market to charge the mobile. It used to cost Rs 10 to charge mobile, but when electricity came, many problems went away at once. Now children also watch cartoons on mobile and also watch movies on TV. Along with this, they also study in the light of the bulb.
