A one day visit was organized to Ralegan Siddhi for class IX students. The main objective of this was not only to marvel and understand the various factors that have contributed to this village being an “ideal” one but also to incorporate and infuse the good points in day to day living. After an hour drive from Wagholi, we reached the humble village of Ralegan Siddhi. We first visited the Information Centre which boasts of a collection of 640 medals and trophies including the Padma Bhushan awarded to Anna Hazare for his invaluable contribution to the betterment of Ralegan Siddhi and the society, as a whole. It also houses a pictorial showcase of how this village went on to become sustainable and is now a role model for others.

We then proceeded to a small hillock just outside the village. It gave us a panoramic view of how this village has managed to flourish even after being deprived of one of the main elements required to survive: water. The western belt of this region of Maharashtra is thoroughly drought – stricken. Ralegan Siddhi although having faced this trauma has now become a pioneer on the energy conservation front. The people, led by Hazare, have carried out various programs like tree plantation, terracing to reduce soil erosion and digging canals to retain rainwater. This has led to conserving water, plenty enough to keep the village wells filled and available for use throughout the year.

Then came the chance to meet the man behind the brainwave. Anna Hazare urged one and all to participate and do their bit to help towards building a better tomorrow. It was truly inspiring to hear him explain his firm yet ambitious plans. After treating ourselves to the humble village cooked meal, amidst the various exotic trees and flowers that adorned the area, we returned home.
