Shyam Sundar Paliwal, social Activist and former of Sarpanch of Piplantri village creates a self sustained model village of Rajasthan for the others to follow. He started ‘Kiran Nidhi Yojna’ in memory of his daughter and whenever a girl child is born in the village, 111 trees are planted in her name and and a deposit of Rs. 31000 is fixed in the bank. 10000 from the amount is contributed by the family of the girl child and rest by the panchayat and other villagers.
“I started the mission in memory of my daughter and after that we decide to plant 111 saplings on the birth of a daughter in Piplantri. The village once considered as barren land is now blessed with around 3.5 lakh trees. The water level is also increased and animals and birds are also moving in the dense green shades. From this year we have implemented the government Sukhanya scheme and creates fixed deposits of 60 girls. With this we bring respect to girls, save forests and increase the ground water level for the future,” said Paliwal.
