Ashika Rajvanshi, a resident of Shivsattakshi municipality ward no.
Ashika Rajwanshi from Bali, who is studying in class 6 in Shivganj Jan Adarsh Secondary School, whose family is in a very poor financial situation, but who is only 12 years old, bravely brought sand from the river and made a toilet at home, surprised everyone.
After the open defecation campaign was started in Shivsattakshi Municipality, Ashika was worried about being made a charpi.
Ashika decided to make a charpi after seeing that a charpi had been made in the village and he himself brought sand from the river to make a charpi.
“I made the brothers and sisters who came to remind me to make the charpi dig a hole”, she said.
Ashika’s and all the houses of Panchgachi now have a charpi. Campaigners are patrolling open defecation sites in the evening and morning to make the use of latrines mandatory.
Also read: We must know about the use of cow dung. Dung is also used as fertilizer and in biogas production.
In Hindu scriptures, cow’s wheat and cow dung are considered sacred and are used in Panchagavya. Recently, an Indian doctor claimed that he ate cow dung to cure various diseases.
Apart from all this, it has been confirmed that cow dung can be used in another very important function. Yes, British farmers have produced electricity from cow dung.
A group of farmers has prepared such a powder from cow dung, from which batteries have been produced.
They have managed to generate so much electricity from one kilogram of dung that they can run a vacuum cleaner for five hours continuously.
Britain’s Arla Dairy has done this miracle. The dairy owned by the farmer has made dung powder and prepared its battery. That battery is named Cow Battery.
It is enough to iron clothes continuously for three and a half hours from AA-sized dung battery. According to the claims of the battery manufacturing company GP Batteries, one cow’s dung provides enough electricity for 3 houses for a year.
According to this calculation, 1.2 lakh houses can be supplied with electricity from 460,000 cow dung. Electricity produced from dung has been started to be used for most of the work in Arla Dairy.
Similarly, waste other than electricity generation is used as fertilizer. According to the report, the dairy owns about 460,000 cows. The dung of which is dried and powder is prepared and energy is produced from it.
