Way back in our rural practicum in Pachod, one of the district beside Aurangabad in Maharashtra, I learnt to know, for the first time in my life that there are beautiful traditional techniques in the village to find a source of an underground water current. Victor, one of my colleague from Tata Institute of Social Sciences was the one who told us about this technique of using dry Coconut to find groundwater.
Though our group of seven members tried it and tried it, we couldn't ascertain the availability of water using the coconut.
The procedure though goes like this:- Take a full coconut after removing the bulky fibre. Leave little fibre almost in a triangular look at the top.There will be two or three black spots on the coconut at this place.

Here is a link of the blog by Mr. Shankar Kumar, who is working his best self to bring these unsung heroes back to light. Please have a look .If you do not , You are ignorant.
.......But do you know about Dr. Vasistha Narayan Singh. Who is the the greatest Mathematician alive. Who travelled a lot in journey of his life from a typical undevloped villagein Bihar to USA, village primary school to Netarhat, Science College Patna and then University of California, Berkley, the life of name and fame to the life of mental disturbance and poverty. The mathematician who challenged works of Great Scientist Albert Einstien. It was related to his Theory of Relativity(E=MC2).
When I was in DAV, from class 7th till class 9th, we were conditioned not to the moral values which were earlier taught to us but to know more about, the not so known, figures of the Arya Samaj. In the Dharma Shiksha book which was taught to the students belonging to both the Hindu and Muslim community children, there were harsh statements infuriating the sentiments of the minority. I used to face great difficulties in digesting those comments and to even write them in the exam, just to get marks. Should Dharma Shiksha or such similar publications from different faith agglomerations, be given this much independence to write ANYTHING about the other communities. Please understand - IT POLLUTES YOUNG MINDS.
Secular values in India are fast declining and one of the experience I lived up with is this one. Any comments?
