TANISHKA : BUILDING BRIDGES TOWARDS A BETTER COMMUNITY
3:25 pm UTC

A 32 year old bridge in Tambave village of Karad built onthe Koyna river connects as many as 15 villages.

It plays a key role facilitating the transportation of cars,trucks, two wheelers, tractors, animal driven carts, cyclists and livestock.The bridge is also used by thousands of students who regularly use it to travelto neighbouring villages. A short while ago there were safety concernsfor commuters due to a broken column in the bridge that not merely restrictedtraffic forcing it to take a longer alternative route-but also posed hazardousand potentially life threatening conditions for pedestrians. The entireTanishka community rallied together to address the issue at the grassroot levelin conjunction with local authorities. With the support of a donation of Rs. 60lakh by the Ex MLA of Patan, Mr. Vikramsinh Patankar, the bridge was speedilyrepaired and normal transportation services restored, thereby demonstrating thepower of unified action by a structured and empowered community.
