Haryana village adopts Jai-Ho support model

Gautam Dheer, Chandigarh, February 6, 2014, DHNS:
Bibipur village gram sabha members on Thursday.
An initiative to stop the slide in sex ratio has transformed Bibipur in Haryana into a model village. But far from gloating over the laurels, the village on Thursday announced that it would embark on a community endeavour that would set off a “chain reaction” and attract more helping hands to work for welfare of mankind.

The initiative, created on the 1 to 3 model made famous by the recent Salman Khan starrer Jai-Ho, calls for each villager to help three persons in some ways and each of those three should help two more, setting off the chain reaction where everyone in the village would have both received and rendered help to each other.

Sunil Jaglan, the 32-year-old village Sarpanch, told Deccan Herald that the village had held a Gram Sabha in which it was unanimously voted to adopt the 1 to 3 model of supporting each other.

“In some time, the number of helping hands in the village will be abundant because of the chain reaction. Every gesture of help will encourage brotherhood and harmony in the village,” Jaglan said.

Each man and woman who help more people will be felicitated and honoured periodically.

At least 70 persons who had received help from nearly a dozen persons in the village at some point in time were identified and called for Thursday’s meeting. “To begin with, we asked these 70 men and women to help at least three persons to start off the chain. This small initiative will generate hundreds of helping hands at the end of the exercise,” he said.
