An attempt to present the LIVE participatory governance model successfully exemplified in a remote village Baghuvar in M.P., India.

Baghuvar has set an example of exemplary development and real Gram Swaraj. A team of social workers led by Maya Vishwakarma recently reached this village and saw the development. The work of the village is such that it is for certain a big news story on the lines of Ralegan Siddhi and Hivre Bazar. We wish to let people know about it and also know that it does not take some celebrity to endorse a Gram Swaraj Model. If we can inculcate the true feeling of Loving Your Motherland in the people, every village of India can become an Ideal Village as envisaged by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently in his Aug 15, 2014 speech. The film is written and directed by Pankaj Shukla. Sound N Clips Production is producing this film on a non-profit basis.
