       Dear Friends,
           Villages are backbone of India and villagers are real strength of a country, but recent scenario creates as the villagers are directly or indirectly promoted to migrate in urban areas which results in backwardness and lack of utilisation of village resources by its own people, but the benefit takes by someone who is not connected to those village in any manner. The main reasons behind these issue is education and employment factors.
       When the society living in the village prepares itself to utilise the resources in their surrounding will leads to live an independent, proud and excellent lifestyle without the domination of anyone, as said by Gandhiji, Adopting Swaraj means implementing a system whereby the state machinery is virtually nil, and the real power directly resides in the hands of people. Gandhi said, "Power resides in the people, they can use it at any time.
