Notes

Knock, knock

SO the enquiry has begun.  SO have the threats.  “Are you ready to face the consequences?” a voice said on the other end of the phone line to one village volunteer.  Villagers may also have succumbed to pressure to say anganwadi was ok …  But locks don’t lie.  When the officials knocked on the doors of the anganwadi in Dallavalasa, it was closed.

Meanwhile public support for the campaign is growing.  One anganwadi worker followed the village karyakartas as they went door to door for the ragi distribution work, watched as they weighed babies, talked to mothers.   Afterwards she invited them to her home.  Now villagers recognize AID India workers as people who can help them bring grievances to the responsible officials.  In Appalagraharam, where anganwadi is supplying grains, a few have come to show that these grains have worms in them.  Since the new Collector seems to be sincere, we will continue conveying this information and support those anganwadi workers who also want to improve things and have had difficulty given the prevailing modus operandi.

Meanwhile Surya newspaper has published an artice on March 23, pg. 3 detailing the extent of corruption in the anganwadi system.
