Talking to villager Lalu Singh Sodha, he told that in Marwari it means difficult. According to the name, the life of the people living here is also very tough. In this village, which is situated in the middle of sand storm keeps blowing from 10 am to 7 pm for 4 to 5 months in a year. In Karda these days, despite the cloud of dust and the mercury reaching 45° degrees, some people were feeding their cows with fodder. Even women and children were not to be seen in the streets of the village. Right now the corona is not completely over, for this they are instructed to stay in their homes. In this village with a population of about one thousand, only 15-20 people were seen outside the houses. Everyone else was in their homes. There is a system of water and electricity in the village through the government’s Border Area Development Scheme. There is little rain here, the means of livelihood of all the villagers is animal husbandry. There are more than two thousand cows in this village. Both the waves of Corona created an outcry in Jaisalmer district. More than 18 thousand positives were found and around 250 deaths occurred. Discipline regarding corona among the people of this village is such that no outsider was allowed to enter the village when the effect of corona started. Their own family members who live in the city have made it mandatory to bring negative reports with them.

Youth took over…
The local youth, sensing the corona epidemic in the past, formed a team under the leadership of Lalu Singh Sodha and undertook awareness and vigilance in the village that no outsider would be allowed to enter the village and if anyone from the village came, they would be negative. For bringing the report or for it, a cover was arranged in a separate assembly hall from the village and the villagers were instructed to stay away from it. Lalu Singh Sodha always takes an active role in social work and is also a pioneer in raising the problems of the border area.

Taking inspiration, the entire village got 45 plus 100% vaccination. Now 18 plus vaccines are being awaited here so that all the youth can also get vaccinated.
