How A Tamil Nadu Woman Got Power Supply For Field After Years Of Struggle

A 71-year-old Gowramma is so happy to see water gushing out of the borewell in her five-acre agricultural land in the Krishnagiri district of Tamil Nadu. It took a four-year-long struggle to get electricity to her landlocked property to power her water pump. Her late husband Military Ramaiah, an ex-serviceman who bought this land in the 1980s, couldn’t afford an electricity connection then as they had eight children to look after and had to be content raising crops depending on uncertain rains. She’s happy as her children can now cultivate commercial crops that could improve their lives.
