DAMaN: Rooted in the Hills and Tribes of Odisha

[ad_1]

Sidharth, a young doctor, is unwillingly sent to a remote village in Malkangiri to work in the public health care center. Unwillingly, because as per the government bond, doctors must work for three years in the rural sector before they are eligible to go for their postgraduate degree and subsequent greener pastures. The city-bred Sidhharth is in for a shock of a lifetime. It might remind one of Mohan Bhargav’s situation in Swades but the devil lies in the details. Mohan Bhargav was blissfully unaware of the ground realities sitting thousands of miles away in the developed world. Sidharth has lived a cocooned existence, barely 200 KMs from these remote areas of his state. He enters the district the same way I have seen my friends from cities make their way into rural areas, wide-eyed and amazed by the Instagram-friendly hills, lakes and natural beauty. The diseases and death in these tribal regions is blamed on superstitions, systemic apathy, and lack of awareness. The solution to these problems is brought in not through any divine intervention but in science and logic.
