New Delhi: The “Women for Water, Water for Women” initiative, a groundbreaking project conducted by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) in collaboration with the National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM) and the Odisha Urban Academy, concluded with remarkable success on its third day, November 9, 2023. This transformative campaign, conducted under the flagship program Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), was aimed at promoting women’s active involvement in water governance.

Spanning three days, the campaign witnessed the enthusiastic participation of more than 14,000 women from various regions of the country (excluding poll-bound States), who actively embraced “Jal Diwali.” Throughout the campaign, these empowered women embarked on visits to over 530 Water Treatment Plants (WTPs) across the nation, gaining invaluable firsthand insights into the intricate processes involved in delivering clean and safe drinking water to households.

State officials extended a warm welcome to the Self-Help Group (SHG) women, recognizing their pivotal role in the campaign’s resounding success. Field visit kits, containing essential items such as training manuals, water bottles, sippers, eco-friendly bags, and badges, were generously provided to all participants.

During the course of the campaign, women delved deeper into the realm of water infrastructure, receiving expert guidance on water quality testing protocols, and actively conducting these tests themselves. This newfound knowledge equips them to ensure the highest standards of water purity for their communities, reflecting a profound sense of ownership and responsibility toward water infrastructure.

The core focus areas of “Jal Diwali” encompassed acquainting and educating women about the extensive impact of the AMRUT scheme, providing comprehensive exposure to Water Treatment Plants, and fostering inclusivity through souvenirs and articles crafted by Women Self-Help Groups (SHGs). Additionally, participants pledged their commitment to conserving and responsibly utilizing water resources, a crucial step toward sustainable water management.

The combined endeavors of SHGs and State officials hailing from 29 States/Union Territories represent a significant leap toward inclusivity and women’s empowerment in the vital realm of water infrastructure.

Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand: In a captivating display of devotion and cultural reverence, Prime Minister Narendra Modi embarked on an enchanting journey through the picturesque landscapes of Uttarakhand, steeped in spirituality and rich tradition.

Donned in a resplendent traditional attire, PM Modi’s daylong visit to the majestic Pithoragarh district became a saga of sacred experiences, showcasing a deep connection with the spiritual heritage of India.

The journey commenced with the Prime Minister’s breathtaking encounter with the Adi Kailash peak, believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva. The visuals of him meditating with folded hands before this sacred monolith left an indelible mark on the nation’s collective consciousness.

“I am overwhelmed with the darshan and worship at the holy Parvati Kund of Pithoragarh in Uttarakhand. I am also happy to catch a glimpse of Adi Kailash from here. From this place of spirituality and culture nestled in the lap of nature, I wished a happy life for all family members,” PM Modi expressed, sharing his heartfelt connection with the divine.

The enchantment continued as he performed aarti at the Shiva Parvati temple along the serene banks of Parvati Kund in Jolingkong. The image of the Prime Minister, deep in devotion, added a touch of the surreal to the entire experience.

Ushering in the essence of Uttarakhand’s rich cultural tapestry, PM Modi then interacted with the locals in the picturesque Gunji village, which served as a testament to his commitment to the people. An exhibition showcasing local artifacts offered an insight into the region’s heritage, creating a bridge between tradition and modernity.

The journey’s spiritual crescendo will be found at Jageshwar Dham, an ancient Shiva temple steeped in history and legend, just 15 km from Gunji. Here, PM Modi will offer his prayers, marking another soul-stirring moment in a day filled with spiritual immersion.

But the visit wasn’t just about devotion and tradition. It was a holistic experience, where spirituality met development. Later in the day, the Prime Minister is set to return to Pithoragarh, where he will lay the foundation stone for several developmental projects worth ₹4,200 crore, underscoring his unwavering commitment to the welfare and progress of the region.
