Young Giants of Byculla Dharampur
8th May, 2004
Saloni & Krutika, two young sweet college students decided that they want to do some water management work. They are members of the “Young Giants Club of Byculla”. Shri Narayanbhai Varma directed the collegians to me. I sent them to Shri Bhikhubhai Vyas.
In the harsh summer heat of more than 420 centigrade, they went to the forest of Dharampur. Following are the photographs of their visit.

All of them are standing besides a small well being dug. The wall surrounding the well is yet to be constructed.

|4.||On 8th May, 2004; I visited the place. Dam is 75% completed. Its height is yet to be increased by 3 feet. This work could have been completed long back. However, due to unseasonal rains, work got disrupted. All the villagers rushed back to their farms to take care of their work before monsoon. Then the marriage season affected the work. However, within about 15 days, the dam will be completed.|
