Desire to build smart villages
There are almost 1.5 billion people in the world who do not have access to Electricity, CC roads, proper drainage systems, drinking water, restrooms, Street lights, and employment. Lakhs of people are still living in huts built with mud, stones and bamboo sticks. Until these people have access to modern services, very little progress can be made to develop their economies and improve lives. I’ve been to many villages during these 30 years and spent time with people in villages where there are No street lights, Hospitals, Schools, restrooms, a drainage system, and roads.
These are the reasons that made me think of Smart Villages or My dream Villages.
WHAT ARE SMART VILLAGES?
Smart Village is the one that has access to sustainable energy services. These energy services act as catalysts for development and enable access to good food, Education, Healthcare, clean water, sanitation, and nutrition.
In my view, a Smart Village is the one where there is access to Good Health, Education, Food and Home to Live. In addition to these basic needs, there should be access to the latest technology. A smart village is the one wherein modern technology is used in agricultural activities.
Why do we need Smart Villages?
The reason for dreaming about Smart Villages is because people are migrating to cities for livelihood opportunities, better education, and healthcare facilities. Other reasons to migrating to cities are because there is no proper rain these years, there is no source of income of people living in villages as there is no rain and in addition to that bore wells are drying out. Hence this idea of Smart Village arises. These are the reasons behind this Desire to build smart villages.
