It is said by many that India has no future. Evidently, history is not made by such people, but those who think differently from the crowd. So, we can very surely say that India is changing and that history is being made after you experience the aforementioned villages where our fellow human beings are striving for victory, taking aide of their knowledge, skill and experience without being brought down by unfavorable circumstances. Visiting these villages will reassure you of our country's scintillating future.

Ralegan Siddhi (www.annahazare.org/ralegan-siddhi.html), now a self sufficient village has been brought up to pace by Anna Hazare. The World Bank has praised Ralegan Siddhi for all the developments that have been carried out. This village is considered today as a model for the environmental conservation. However Ralegan Siddhi's biggest achievement is the use of non – conventional energy.

Similarly, Popatrao Pawar along with his fellow villagers performed a miracle in Hiware Bazar (www.hiware-bazar.epanchayat.in). This village is noted for its irrigation system and water conservation programme. This has enabled Hiware Bazar fight its drought and drinking water problems.

Sawali (www.savalee.org) was built to be a shelter for orphans by a youth named Nitesh Bansode. He has been running this orphanage for last ten years. An initiative in Snehalaya (www.snehalaya.org) to provide homes to deprived individuals was a subject of praise in Aamir Khan's Satyameva Jayate. This institute founded by Dr. Girish Kulkarni has been working for the welfare of the downtrodden women and children. We have their focus mainly on the Rehabilitation, Education, Children, Healthcare and Awareness creation.

'Shantivan', based at Beed district, a project by Deepak Nagargoje, is yet another organization which works for the betterment of the children and families of suicide farmers.

The Vigyan Ashram (www.vigyanashram.com) is a centre of Indian Institute of Education (IIE) Pune. It was started by Late Dr. S.S. Kalbag at Pabal. It was mainly founded to solve the problems of the academically unsuccessful children. Such efforts of the real social workers in the society have shaped innumerable lives and have made them live a better life. These success stories are in fact guidelines for the future generations. A visit to these places and understanding their efforts would definitely inspire children and adults to walk along this path.
