On her way back from gathering firewood, Shyam Bai had a terrible fall as the path she was travelling on was more mud than concrete. There are no concrete roads in Ward number 11 of Takhtpur village and there are 32 families who need to cross this road every day. People often fall and hurt themselves on these roads.
