This is a pencil sketch of my village Pandhda.Around 30 Brahmin families were rehabilitated in this village of Mayarbhanj,in Orissa state of India.The previous generation got fed up with flood so they migrated from coastal areas and requested the then Maharaja of Mayurbhanj to allow them to stay in that place in side a forest.The king laughed but agreed to their request.Now hardly few families stay there as the old generation is gone and the next generation have settled down in bigger cities and towns. Drinking Water during summer months is a real problem.Even though electrified the voltage never exceeds 120volts and supplied for 6 to 8 hours a day.Nearest market place is around 10 kilometers from the village.The village is now in ruins.
