Question:

Can you imagine some village which initially had no job opportunities but later came up with many?

Answer:

Rampur was a small village which initially depended on agriculture which was also dependent on rainfall.

(i) Then electricity reached the village and people could irrigate their fields and could grow 2 to 3 crops in a year and get work.

(ii) Some people set up small scale industries which could be run by electricity and provided employment to people.

(iii) A school was established and now the population started to become educated and as a result they could seek employment in and outside the village. The village became prosperous and soon had better health, education, transport and job facilities.
