NGO helps 12 to walk again - Happy to help: Bharat Vikas Parishad
The Telegraph: Monday, August 2, 2010

Kokrajhar, Aug. 1: It’s an emotional moment for 20-year-old Gandhi Narzary. He is walking on his own almost a year after he lost his leg while working at a coal mine in Meghalaya.

Gandhi is not alone. There are 11 others like him who would be walking unaided thanks to Bharat Vikas Parishad, a social organisation, which came up with the initiative to provide artificial limbs to these economically backward people.

The Kokrajhar unit of the Bharat Vikas Parishad today organised Vikolang Sahayata Sibir at the district’s Basic Training Centre where, apart from the 12 artificial limbs, three callipers and one wheelchair were distributed to the people mostly from poor families. The organisation also took the measurements of 45 handicapped people who lost their legs in some accident or other.

"I cannot express my happiness. I don’t have words to express my feelings. I am walking again after over 20 years," said Mukunda Barman, who lost his leg in a road incident in 1983, trying to walk with his artificial limb.

"I have been taking help of a stick after I lost my leg. I am happy to walk again. It will take me sometime to adjust to it but I am happy," said Narzary with tears in his eyes. "I saw others walking comfortably with it and I am sure I could do that," he added.

Narzary was working as a labourer at a coal mine in Meghalaya when a crane crushed his lower limb.

"It takes sometimes to adjust to the artificial limp," said Bidyadhar Choudhury, technician from Archana Vikolang Kendra, Guwahati, which is a wing of the Bharat Vikas Parishad who took the measurements and fitted the limbs.

Choudhury himself received an artificial limb after he lost his leg because of bone cancer when he was in Class VI.

He has been working with Bharat Vikas since 1995 and has made nearly 10,000 artificial limbs till now. "Only a person who lost has his leg or hand knows the feeling. It feels nice to see one walking again, even though through an artificial means," he said.

"This programme is one of the many projects by the Bharat Vikas Parishad. There are many handicapped persons in the district. We are happy to help them," said Shankarlal Chakraborty, zonal organising secretary of the organisation.

NGO commended for its environment conservation programmes in Gujarat

Bombay News.Net: Monday, 19July, 2010 (ANI)
Thaindian News: 19 July 2010 07:40:58 by ANI


Bharat Vikas Parishad, a forum devoted to national development has given the Vasundhra Trust, a non-governmental organisation of Rajkot in Gujarat a cash award of rupees one lakh in recognition for its environment conservation programmes and uplift of rural people.

The NGO, which is led by Vallabh Katheria, a former central lawmaker has mooted and executed extensive water harvesting projects by building check dams across streams and rivulets.

Founded in 1998, the Vasundhra Trust has also been active in counselling farmers involved with agriculture, animal husbandry, health, floating self-help groups (SHGs) of women, coordinating education in villages and rendering assistance during natural calamities like earthquake, floods, drought and cyclone.

The concept of check dams was promoted in Gujarat for water conservation since an ample amount of water could be collected in catchments areas of the dams.

Thus, farmers have been able to get water even after the monsoons. The accumulated rainwater also would percolate and raise the water table in the area.

"When the check dams were built and it rained in the monsoon season, the fields got filled with water, its very advantageous. The problem of drinking water in the village was also solved. Earlier, when we used to plough our fields, we could not do it in any season except monsoons, not in the Rabi season. But now, due to these check dams, we can plough our fields in the Rabi season and our income has doubled and tripled," said Naran Pambhar, a farmer of Devda village.

As for the Vasundhra Trust, Katheria said the farmers could pump out water whenever they want and NGO workers would also help them to access other government schemes.

The NGO also has been planting trees in residential areas, temple compounds and schools.

NGO volunteers have been planting trees in crematoria and lent a fillip to the green cover in Saurashtra, regarded to be mostly arid.

They have planted around five lakh trees in around 861 villages of Rajkot District.

"Being in politics also, our main aim was to serve the people, uplift the people, especially villagers. So, for that, I worked for water harvesting and then tree plantation and after that we taught the farmers about organic farming, drip irrigation system, how to produce more in less land, and how to increase their income," Vallabh Katheria.

He claimed that the Vasundhra Trust had facilitated a government grant of 25 million rupees for tree plantation 50 million rupees for building up check dams in the area, and had overseen the execution of many projects. (ANI)
