Hi Wellwishers.
The sound of magic is in the sound of joy and happiness when one calls to fellow villagers- to see how water looks like, to see how water flows, to see how mother earth blesses. The hands that indicate to the backbone and the bent knees as tears flow show how their body has torn off walking miles for water. Their smiles show how God is kind and how real joy is magical. After 7 hours of hard boring into Earth, mud dust stone particles flushing out as the bore went deeper n deeper till 380 feet where water just flashed on to the ground. And at 540 feet water depth got unlocked bringing the reality. Photos attached. Thereafter it took another 3 hours to seal the refined part of bore pipes inside to the water level. Next 4 days spent in getting the pipelines laid out to the village water points and connections to tank. Job done. With hard work. Patience.

Following in parallel, the roads were cleaned up inside the village, shrubs cleaned out making it apear a place to live by. 26 huts were provided with hygenic materials.

In addition, 500 plus children in age of 3 to 16 - parentless, single parents, mentally retarded, under privileged, girls and boys frozen inside government hostel rooms on street lights and metal tin beds were provided with Educational materials and encouraged with food and a walk outside their comfort zones. To a new world of magic. Photos attached.

Washroom provisions could not be initiated due to request from village as last priority. Construction support to hut repairs and roads done. Plumbing teams from nearest town, electricians from the neighbour village and support from women folk made the 5 days 18 hours a day work of ours to be contentful. And a very big gratitude, kindest humbling thankfulness to you. For sharing in kind. For praying in abundance.
