Place: TINSUKIA, ASSAM
As a teacher & volunteer of art of living organisation Myself, Mousumi Sharma Borpuzary & Dabokr bora visited Mirigoan, Garaki, and Tangabari on January 2014 as a part of the survey for the Rural Electrification under the “Light a Home ” Project. We found that the people of the area are worst affected by floods & the area seems to be much backward in all respect. The Transportation seems to be very difficult for the villagers like crossing the river and walking long distances to reach their homes. During rainy season it seems to be more pathetic .We conducted various stress relief camps like Nava ChetanaShivir, RuralHappiness program and constantly interacted with them that they felt much relief from problems. The villages are now under our first priority in the rural electrification program and will be fulfilled by the end of September 2014.
Recently we came to know that they are worst affected by the flood. Taking Notice of this we visited them last Saturday, 6th September 2014 and distributed clothes and essentials to more than 300 flood affected families. The Art of Living teacher, Mr RanjanGogoi and some other volunteers accompanied me.
I’m really grateful to our beloved Guruji for giving me an opportunity and providing me with all his blessings so that I’m able to serve these people. Our volunteers and teachers are so dynamic that we’re able to take care of these situations.
