Best Of June 2021

As the sixth month of the year 2021 comes to an end, we present our top six stories by our correspondents – Bhakti Kothari, Pallavi Priya, and Raghav Goyal.

A civil servant works in a never ending circle of development and protecting his people. Their continuous efforts to uplift their respective regions is the reason why we get to observe new and different projects, initiatives, and growth every now and then. They do it all. Their effort to bring light into people’s lives and guide them on the righteous path is never-ending. And for that, we praise and salute them.

From converting his native village into India’s first smart village to bringing back precious wildlife in his district; from already preparing to protect children during Covid 3.0 to conserving the environment with his people and to preparing oxygen bed facility in a week during crisis, our officers are no less than the superheroes we get to see only in movies.

Therefore, Indian Masterminds presents its top six stories from June 2021 portraying real life heroism by bureaucrats.

WELCOME TO DHANORA- INDIA’S FIRST SMART VILLAGE

Welcome to Dhanora – a smart village situated in the heartland of Chambal in the Dhaulpur district of Rajasthan. Upon visiting it, you’ll find clean roads laced with lush green trees, solar street lights, brick homes painted in vibrant colors, a skill development center, a meditation center, and even a public library! But Dhanora didn’t always look like that. Prior to becoming a smart village, its chief features were road-less passages, the smell of open defecation looming in the air, and a less than healthy and hygienic look that characterize so many of India’s villages. What changed this? The efforts of IRS officer Mr. Satyapal Singh Meena and his team.
