Village Jhiree in Raigarh district of Madhya Pradesh is, of late, in the news?for a very good reason. People of the village have accepted, as their life mission, this one saying of Shri H.V. Seshadri, RSS Akhil Bharatiya Pracharak Pramukh??Just as Ganga nourishes the neighbourhood all along as it flows, a Sangh shakha should be instrumental in the all-round uplift of the surrounding community?. There is a strong shakha in the village and many of its workers have gone out as Pracharaks and Vistaraks to spread the Sangh work. The Sangh workers of the village vowed 4-5 years back to make their village an ideal one. The biggest problem that the village faced was water scarcity. It was from here that they began the work. They collected money and dug a bore-well just outside the village. Through pipes, water reached every door. There was enough water for irrigation as well. That brought happy days to the village. The villagers made arrangements for harvesting rain-water too. Many more projects followed. Schooling for all children in the village, helping women and youth in every household achieve self- sufficiency through vocational training in many skills. Trained youths are sent to seek jobs in towns. Once they achieved physical well-being, the residents thought of making Jhiree a Sanskrit village. Two full-time workers of Sanskrit Bharati are teaching Sanskrit to one and all. As a result, many in the village have started speaking in Sankrit.
