AURANGABAD (Bihar): The Mahadalits of Bihar are gradually waking up to the importance of education, so
much so that they are even ready to provide their personal land for school buildings. The financially sound
Mahadalit families want to contribute to the wellbeing of their caste and community. Ramgati Chaudhary, a
Mahadalit, has decided to get his 1.5 kattha land registered in the name of the governor of the state for
construction of a primary school at Gulzarpur, Dawoodnagar (Ward number 5), in Aurangabad district.
He made this announcement at a meeting of the villagers. The meeting was chaired by former municipality chief Yamuna Prasad Swarnakar. Retired DDO Laxman Chaudhary, retired teacher Hansraj Chaudhary, Jagdish Prasad Singh, Rameshwar Prasad, Ramjit Singh, Ravindra Singh, Ramchandra Chauhan and Ramkewal Chaudhary were among those present on the occasion. The twoyear- old school has had a male and a female teacher but has been housed in a hut.
