On the Trails of a Childhood Dream"

The first look of the Jaisalmer fort from the balcony of our hotel room was spectacular. As I stepped on the balcony after a brief nap and looked out, a dazzlingly bright sunny morning greeted me with the very yellow looking Jaisalmer Fort in the backdrop. The fort made by Raja Jaisal in the 12th century looked nothing like any other fort I’d seen so far. No wonder the Legendary Film Director, Mr. Satyajit Ray used the term ‘Golden Fort’ for his story – the imposing fort made of yellow limestone, looked breath-taking and indeed close to something made of gold!  Those who haven’t had the good fortune to experience the thrill of Satyajit Ray’s timeless ‘Sonar Kella’are really unfortunate.  But Jaisalmer, is unique a has a special charm for a traveler. The dusty roads, the camels, the rustic people of Rajasthan - specially the hauntingly beautiful and strong Rajasthani women and the unmistakable sound of ‘Ravanhattha’ the quintessential Rajasthani musical instrument – all these are magical!

Social Security for All

 P. Srinivasa Rao, an agricultural labourer, lived in Ullipalem village of Krishna district in Andhra Pradesh. Being a poor daily wage labourer and having no fixed assets in his name, he could barely manage two square meals for his family. Srinivasa never thought of opening a bank account till he was convinced by Saptgiri Gramin Bank about the benefits of having an account with them. Finally, he opened his bank account in March 2015.  With some persuasion from the bank, he also opted for the Union Government’s Life Insurance Scheme, Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojna (PMJJBY) and paid the premium amount of Rs. 330 in July 2015. Suddenly, in August 2015, he got a massive heart attack and died leaving behind his wife and two small kids. His wife knew about the insurance cover her husband had taken under PMJJBY.
