With the purpose of upliftment of Gonda district in Uttar Pradesh, a new formula was evolved for practical success in several fields, such as, irrigation, animal husbandry, dairy’ farming, moral uplift and creation of financial resources. Small farms were clustered for irrigation by one diesel pump which could irrigate about 20 acres of land. Youth were prompted to take loans from the banks for purchase of engine pumps to be supplied to the farmers on rent. This formula worked so well that the’ villages in Gonda district were saturated with irrigation facilities. Cattle rearing was liked with multiple cropping.

Most of the targets fixed for different, areas were achieved, which was an unusual phenomenon. This could be possible only because of right motivation, participation and initiative of the people. Imagination and creativity combined together helped in finding out workable solutions to the problems of the community.
