One of the major issues with Jhajjar is the condition of the government schools in the district. As of now the facilities that are being provided to students may be sufficing for the time being but if the region's young minds need to be brought up at par with the rest of the state, and by extension rest of the country then it is essential that they be given the infrastructure and advantages that one would get in a top drawer private school in a place like Gurgaon. It is important that proper steps are taken in order to empower the government schools in these areas of Haryana considering the role that they play in the greater social context.
In the supposedly lesser developed areas, these schools will have a greater access to students, thanks to the lower costs. A lot more people from the less well to do rungs of the society, who wish to do well in life and think of education as an integral tool to achieve the same, would be able to send their wards to school.
It is also important to upgrade the energy infrastructure in place in this Haryana district. Even though the state claims to have provided electricity to every single nook and corner, it is common knowledge that there are several places which suffer from shortage of electricity and water at times. In order to make sure that this is not the case with Jhajjar proper steps need to be taken. The district and state authorities could look at alternative sources of energy such as wind turbines or even educating people on using indigenous sources of energy such as gobar gas for example so that the energy requirements can be adequately met.
Very recently, a principal at a government college in Birohar, which is a part of this district, faced a financial penalty for not informing an applicant properly, which affected the said individual's academic career. These incidents need to be stopped from repeating themselves. Once again for the state to progress, it is essential that all the districts are at the same level from the point of view of development and competency and this can only happen when the educational institutions play their role properly. However, the college officials also need to understand this and play their role properly. They are supposed to guide the young and aspiring students to a better life and not provide them false or incomplete information and ruin their lives in the process.
Jhajjar has also come in the news because of the rape and consequent burning of dalit women. This is a sordid happening and a violation on more counts than one first of all, it negates the right of a woman, a lady to live her life with dignity and independence and secondly, it denies a class of people, who have been trod upon and deprived for centuries, what is rightfully theirs a peaceful and progressive existence.
The civil and social rights activists can protest as much as they want to against such heinous and indescribable acts of crime but in the end the administration has to come forward and take a decisive step to put an end to this ugly face of the state. How it achieves the same is best left to the powers-that-be to decide.
