Recent LJA Activities


It is again over two months since we wrote on this blog. No particular reason other than some travel and so being away from online activity. However, coming back, this is just to tell that LJA activities in Madhya Pradesh are on a steady rise. During the last two months there have been meetings, travel and dialogues reaching out to villages and forest areas, mainly in the districts of Indore, Dhar, Alirajpur and Jhabua in western Madhya Pradesh, Anooppur and Singrauli in the eastern parts and also into Balrampur, a district of Chhattisgarh, adjacent to Singrauli.
In Bihar, following the March end convention, the LJA team got involved in a resistance against damming Baghmati, Kamla and related rivers. The team is preparing a booklet from the lokavidya point of view to dialogue with the participants of this resistance movement.
In Uttar Pradesh, a further dialogue has been initiated with Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) to call a Unity Conference of the Lokavidyadhar Samaj. The BKU leadership was at Vidya Ashram on 8th August for a Varanasi division meeting with active workers of the union.

We expect to bring to you some concise reporting of these exercises on this blog in the next few days.
