In the Kanke block of Ranchi, Jharkhand, after 74 years of independence, development remains a distant thing for the residents. There are two panchayats in the area and dividing them, flows a river. No bridge was ever constructed for the villagers to cross the river; as a result people of nearly eight villages are cut off from markets, schools and other basic facilities. The situation gets worse during rain as the locals claim that many have lost their lives while crossing the river.
