Brig Vijay commented on Bridging the Divide: I, You & We

Dear Dr Shikha,

Thank you for your prompt response.

Peace and harmony is a major problem adversely affecting development and health of villages in India and your idea would be a pioneering effort. Another area which is equally important is to save depleting natural resources in and around villages. Scarcity and quality of water is at the top of this problem. Problem like this can be solved by active intervention and implementation of ways and means to conserve water and solve the problem of increasing brackishness or salty of water.
I think your experience in this project can then catapult to active implementation to address the water problem.
with best wishes.

Dear Dr Shikha,

I have seen your proposal. Wow! its great to know that your organisation is doing a yeomen service to the poor and marginalized in the backward area of rural India.
Regarding your project, I would like to comment that the problem is typical to India as here the society is divided economics, politics, caste sub-caste, religion, creed and so on. People have made efforts to change the scenario by social reformemnt but of little success as the approach has been through preaching
i am sure that the methodology proposed by your organisation is out of box thinking, unique and workable as instead of preaching it is involvement of youth of different factions for village development (sanitation) which may lead to harmony and peace.
Wish you all success and I hope that the project is shortlisted for better service to mankind.

With best wishes

sincerely yours
