Rural Madhya Pradesh Still in Dark Ages

While India ranks sixth in the world in terms of overall electricity production and consumption, many regions in rural India still remain in darkness.

Our community correspondent Arti Bai Valmiki reports from Bathiyagarh block of Madhya Pradesh that hasn’t received electricity since the past 25 years.

The residents of ward no.s 9,10 & 11 have been living in darkness and fear. Some villagers have been bitten by snakes and scorpions at night as they were unable to spot them with no light. For these people light is not just a commodity; it is a reminder of life’s harsh realities. The very least we can do is wake up to the fact that everyone deserves a light.

To help them you can call:
Mr. Sahai
Chief electrical Engineer,
Electricity department
Bathiyagarh, Damoh
