A main village in Kanniyakumari needs to be clustered by small village as because a village with 5,000 inhabitants is fair among wise men. At the same time there are villages with just 1000 people.
A village is sustained and grown as and when it meets some basics. Gandhi’s distilled wisdom needs to be skipped and skew into technology and health support of western and Indian.
There are 3 main things like health care, hygiene & education that had to be met for a village to thrive.
A village growth is depended on its strong panchayat. It is that which takes decision and implements them. All the financial strength and finances are monitored by the village panchayat of Kanniyakumari.
The rural sector growth is garnered by Village Co-operative societies in Kanniyakumari. Farmers get credit and loan from co-operatives. And in India it is 97% of the villages financed by its members and by the government. With lack of motivation many a co-ops are mismanaged. No argument can spare the situation. A women participation in forming the village co-operatives scales high. No ignorance even when a person wishing to build a village single handedly.
Power and Water are the main ingredients in the development of the village. We can see more villages are given electricity nowadays. It is completely unexpected. Solar power for rural areas is to be overlooked. Kanniyakumari irrigation and local needs of villages are transformed by power. Give always top priority to the irrigation which will sort out regional requirements. Farming is the one boom life of the villages given the irrigation works.
Healthcare of Sri Lanka opted is the best introduced in its villages. But a country bigger than that India couldn’t triumph in providing such health care and medical facilities. Only the adjacent cities cater to the 60-70% of Kanniyakumari villagers for their basic hospitality. Every village should be equipped with 1 man or 2 man clinics initially and then expanding to medium size hospitals.
Hygiene & Potable water are also the inevitable things. Each house should be accommodated with a toilet if not a public toilet.
Education in Indian Village can be traced to its villages of Kanniyakumari. For instance, Arunachal Pradesh holds the record for overcrowded schools; Bihar & Uttar Pradesh records for the least presence of the children in schools. And some villages are short of even primary schools. Can we expect parents to have their children sent to schools? Of course not as it is their mindset.
Accessing roads to urban places and other villages are the village infrastructure. The internet should work as window to the world for the villages.
Soon, Indian Post Payment Bank will be initiated across the post and banks indicatively by next year.
One can see close to five thousand ATM machines housed across the states of India. Other services like 3rd party insurance ‘Ayushman Bharat’ is en route by the bank. IPPB will have people paying central and state governments remittances, municipal dues and fees of educational institutions easily and quickly. As a result, a village with such a facility will find a change in business deal executing its projects.
To make it viable, the central and state level should commit each other. No single man can handle it properly but of course a well prepared man can manage things moving.
Village is large as well as small in India like even at a stone’s throw of distance. In such instances, there is a presence a ghetto in village. These folks barred from using the basic facilities of the co-village. Even walking aside is shielded. Always a detouring of village performed when moving to other place. Temples which is where the social activities are held for the Hindus are barred to the ghetto village residents.

- A simple one or two buck project gives way to trouble a lot. The cost of the project shows a variance across states.
