He facilitated us to go Wyanad district of Kerala where I saw Panchayat office which was like a corporate office.

Visit to Bay of Bengal

Yesterday I have visited Bay of Bengal, it was great experience for me. Seeing seashore, mangroves, sand dunes  was full of curiosity. I have never seen these ecosystem in real indeed. I was having my own imagination of these ecosystem but when I saw these eco-system in reality, I feel a type of achievement as I was on seventh heaven. I got valuable information which I never got in books or any other type of source of information. We ( PDM 11) students got opportunity to talk with fisher man community and we also interected with the people whose village was safe even in Sunami. Now community have realized the importance of eco-system in their life.  It was a good experience for me and movements in this visit are like memories for rest of my life.
