Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar was on Sunday accorded a warm welcome as he visited the tiny village of Puttamrajuvari Kandrika which he has decided to adopt under the Modi’s Scheme of Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana.
Tendulkar interacted with the villagers, who told him about the lack of proper roads, sanitation facilities, and also about the power supply scenario in the village and said they wished to see it turn into a model village after getting the necessary basic amenities.
Tendulkar laid foundation for the construction of Rs 2.79 crore worth developmental works (in the first phase), including a community centre, Anganwadi school with kitchen, a play ground, waiting halls and toilets, among other things.
The retired cricketer is also scheduled to administer oath to the villagers asking them to shun tobacco and alcohol.
Do you know?
Recently, the IRIS Knowledge Foundation in collaboration with UN-HABITAT was published that. In 2020, India is set to be the Youngest Country in the World.
They compared India with four cities Like China, Brazil and two more cities too. Comparatively India’s Population is lower than that of China’s Population. But India has the highest population of 10-24-year-olds. Nearly 78.9% of population is under the age of 10-24 Years Old. Now, China is in the range of 54% under the age of 10-24 years Old.
So, India has a lot of opportunity to convert our nation from a developing country to a developed country. This is not a big task for us because every citizen thinks India is our country. This mantra is enough to change our nation.
Modi, our Prime Minister takes the initiatives to start social awareness activities, which inspires many celebrities and media to follow his footsteps. However, before that, how many actually thought about the dying need? Think over it. Serve our country, bring pride to our nation.
