Dawn of hope in village of India’s loneliest school kid

Dawn of hope in village of India’s loneliest school kid

PUNE: Until a month ago, the only visitor to Chandar in Velhe taluka was a zilla parishad school teacher who would come to the village every day to guide his lone student.
Monday’s was a different story as dressed in their best, the villagers of Chandar had gathered to welcome several visitors — retired Armed forces and Indian Administrative Services officers, businessmen and local politicians — for the inauguration of the newly constructed community hall.

Besides the hall that would have an LED TV, facilities such as solar lanterns, lights for homes, a water storage tank with solar pumps and a library also became a reality in the village located over 100km from here.


Forest department and zilla parishad officials pledged that a proposal for a “pucca” road and electricity line has been sent to the government and work will start soon.

On March 25, TOI was the first to report about the abject poverty and lack of basic facilities in Chandar and the grit of Rajnikant Mendhe (29), who would reach the village following a 12-km trek through the hills with 400ft drops on either side to teach Yuvraj Sangale (8), his only student.

“After reading the TOI report, our team from Science and Technology Park, along with some of our incubate companies, visited Chandar in the first week of April to ascertain what we could do. The biggest problem in Chandar village is access. It is extremely difficult to reach the village because of the slippery road through the treacherous terrain of the Sahyadri ranges,” said Rajendra Jagdale, director general and CEO of Science and Technology Park, Pune.

Jagdale got in touch with startups and industry partners and decided to complete the mission within a month. “When we told the villagers what we want to do, they came in big numbers and and helped in digging, construction activity and improving the road condition. Our aim is to reduce the socio-economic vulnerabilities of the villagers. We also want people to know that if they come together and use technology properly, they can make a difference to the neglected communities in a very short time,” he said.

Science and Technology Park, Pune is one of the Science and Technology Entrepreneurs Parks set up in 1986 by the National Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Development Board of the department of science and technology on the Savitribai Phule Pune University campus .

Women of the village, who had to walk all the way to the outskirts to fetch water from a well till now, were the happiest with the development. “My life has gone into this. It becomes difficult during summer. I am happy that the days will change once the water tank is in place and a pipeline is laid. Women like me will not have to struggle like earlier days,” said Tai Sangale.

          I Don't know 'Destiny' exist or not ....But, If it Exist , then,Surely  I can say that whatever happening in my Life  it's all according to Destiny.

It has been Eight years Since I am Working here in Chandar Village as a Primary Teacher...It has been hard time for me since that.Everyday I face the new challenge here..Reaching here is the big Problem ...
         No Proper Roads,Jungle all around,Snakes meets you every hour..Village has no Electricity,no Basic needs therefore it's hard to live there for person like me.

       Even that, working there was my Passion & still it is going on. Initially It was fun in School with Students...more than Ten Students..all were energetic with full of activeness... Therefore many of  years went in fun Working on them. But, this picture not remained same. This Village has 15-20 huts having near about 50-60 peoples living there.Most of the Famillies migrated in Surat & Mumbai for Labour Jobs.Therefor ,this influenced on School Strength also.Starting from 12 students ;Now I have just single students.And ,if this condition remained same ,undoubtly, one day School has to be Closed.

         But,always there is a hope....this sentence proved true it'self.
   I don't know how Times Of India Reporter got the idea about my School & they reached there..& after all Drama Start..When they Published the News abouy My School & Village ,it Viraled.Then all the peoples like Jayshri Bokil Mam(Divya Marathi NewsPaper), Supriya Nair Mam & Team (MidDay),Vinayak Pawar Sir(Samna),& many Others gave the light to this news.
          I received  So many calls for appriciation about my work.. & in that one Call I received from Mr.Jagdale Sir ,a great person..who is Director General /C.E.O. Of Science & Techno. Park Pune University... He arranged the meeting & discussed how we can make changes in Chandar Village so that villagers live easy life.... And Plan Finilized..
