Whenever we think of a village, the picture that comes to mind is of people having personal quarrels, absence of proper roads and unhygienic living conditions with no signs of development. However, Baghuwar village in Madhya Pradesh’s Narsinghpur district has set an example of exemplary development. Each and every corner of the village has turned green as if the entire village is a garden! There is no garbage and sanitation problem. People who migrated to nearby cities have started coming back to the village for settlement. They are now utilizing their experience, talent and knowledge for village development. When there was no approach road, youths themselves constructed a three km road for the village. Pleased by their efforts, government helped them for constructing the cement road. The village is now ready to get declared as ideal village.Efforts are also in full swing to have school education up to class 10, so that every girls child will be properly educated. Realizing the importance of sports in the overall development of children, enough arrangements have been made in the village. An indoor hall was constructed. An open mini stadium and a swimming tank near Dhamni river were also constructed.Inspirational quotes are written on public walls so as to impart values to the villagers. In Ramayan Mandal of the village, Ramayan is recited every Tuesday and Saturday. All villagers come together for this spiritual work. This village is so beautiful that anybody will love to get settled here permanently!Selfless service: Though the entire village has cement concrete roads, the approach road for Gram Panchayat chief’s residence is not yet in proper condition! The Gram Panchayat chief says,” Panchayat’s money should be spent for villagers’ development only. I will not use that money for constructing road to my house. When I will have enough money, I will do it.” Such selfless attitude of top officials has made the village development possible. Each and every villager is associated with RSS work and is rendering his selfless service for village development.Prabhat Pheri (morning procession): From last 50 years, a Prabhat Pheri is held regularly at 5 am in which all villagers participate with enthusiasm. Through bhajan and keertan, awareness is created among people for discharging their duties towards nation. People participate in large number setting aside religious and caste differences.Effective utilization of government schemes: In this black age of corruption, none of the schemes reaches villages; the money doesn’t reach up to the villagers at all. Hence the government schemes go unsuccessful. But, in this village, none of the government schemes fail because the villagers know how to effectively utilize government schemes for village development. They work hand in hand for the success of the scheme by giving their 100% contribution regarding money, efforts and skill. Thus the villagers participate in the development work with full dedication.Village free from quarrels: Maximum quarrels arise out of politics. Keeping this view in mind, elections are never held in village so as to maintain a peaceful atmosphere. Opinion of elderly people is sought for selecting 'Sarpanch' (village leader) and their advice is followed with due respect. Hence there is no place for quarrels. Even if the problem persists, it is sorted out by panchayat samiti. No quarrel reaches up to the court. As the liquor consumption is totally banned, family quarrels are also rare to be found. Clean, beautiful and efficient village: All the houses have lavatories. Hence the atmosphere remains clean. Each locality is unique in cleanliness and decency. Specially Harriman locality is the best in this regard. People used to go for morning walk in this locality. There are 35 tractors, 51 gobar gas plants, 75 sugarcane processing machines, 25 hand pumps and threshers in the village having a population of about 1600. 25 pits have been dug by gram panchayat for pouring the filth. These pits are auctioned every year and the money generated is utilized for panchayat development. Adequate measures are adopted for water conservation. Farm ponds have been built so as to conserve the rain water.This village has broken all the caste barriers. An auditorium has been built for entire villagers in the Harijan locality to inculcate a feeling of equality and brotherhood.... ...How to reach Baghuwar:Baghuwar is a small village in Kareli mandal, district Narsinghpur.
