The work and determination of a single man has changed the lives of many. It is nice to read about the 'good' going on in the world.

While your taps runs in vain as you brush your teeth, there are entire villages in India that don’t get water supply for months. Of course, the government doesn’t give a sh*t as usual. But then, there are messiahs like Rajender Singh aka ‘the water man of India’ who come to the rescue of the underprivileged.
After receiving a degree in Ayurvedic medicine and surgery, Rajendra took up a government job as a National Service Volunteer for education in Jaipur. Meanwhile he also got associated with Traun Bharat Sang and eventually within three years became the general secretary of the organization. Frustrated with the internal politics at TBS, he got the entire board to resign leaving the organization to him. In 1984, after quitting his government job Rajendra sold all his belongings in return of Rs 23,000, and took a bus ride to the last stop in the interiors of Rajasthan. The last stop turned out to be Kishori village in Thanagazi tehsil in Alwar district. After blending in with the villagers, Rajnedra with 3 of his colleagues from TBS started an Ayurveda clinic and promoted education throughout the district.
