Situated within it's own perimeter surrounding by hills area i can guarantee you wouldn't find any signals there whether aircel, vodafone, tata docomo, or even airtel! Just switch off your phone would be better. It save your battery.
At first i was surprised as the sub center was locked. I thought it's because there is no patient. But i was told it is because of the man power (which means the doctors) are not present. Government of India provides the building and private sector provides the man power. Partnership in health delivery system.
We arrived at the village around 11.15 am and the day was getting hot. But it's not stopping me from wanted to explore the place. There were me and my three colleagues, Nikhil sir, Akshata mam, chacha uncle the driver and Chanappa. We supposed to provide check up and treatment if there is any patient come.
|The sub center|
My three colleagues climbed down from our mobile dental van and sat in front of the sub center. There is a house in front of it which the owner has a puppy. So they played with the puppy. NIkhil sir came down too. We talked a little bit. I asked about the village. What the people do for their living etc etc. Then it blurt out from my mouth that i wanted to take a look at the place. The journey then began....
They say picture speaks thousand words. Let's take a peek at those.
|A lady was drying jowar|
The first thing that i saw near the house was this, jowar. Jowar is from the family of pulses. They dry it, grind and finally they made it into flour so it can be prepare to make food.
|Nikhil sir with drying ground nuts|
Nikhil sir showed me the place. The villagers grow crops to earn money. They grow jowar, ground nuts, corns, chillies, corriander and curry leaves, vegetables and so on. Most of them do not have car but they do have motorcyles as their mean of transportation.
