Tapendra Mahto was the founder of Vivekananda Seva Sangh Organisation in his village. He worked as president of village for several years. Now the organisation is working well for the development of village under supervision of Divyayan Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama, Morabadi. Presently he is a member of the organisation.
Sri Tapendra Mahto aged 38 years is the resident of a small beautiful village besides hilly areas of Ranchi situated in Ramgarh district. He has one small brother and two sisters. Sisters are already married and living happily, with their family. Tapendra Mahto was having a land of more than 10 acres area , but he along with his father were able to grow only upland paddy and sweet potato on this land . Growing only two crops annually by traditional method does not provided sufficient income for leading a family of 6 members. So, his family was suffering from financial crisis. He has completed his education up to Intermediate, but the critical situation of family compelled him to drop out education and face the battlefield of life. In this situation, Tapendra heard about Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama and KVK Training Programmes. He got linked with it and received training from kvk . Intervention of KVK, his personal efforts strong determination and hard labour guided him to choose right path and ultimately he became able to fetch more income from farming and animals husbandry Sector which transformed his life fully.
PREVIOUS STATUS OF FARMER : Few years back, Shri Tapendra Mahto was a traditional farmer, who could not continue his education due to financial problems of family. He was practicing farming and animals rearing work only by the traditional knowledge which he learned from his father and villagers. The income earned was very meagre and not sufficient for the family.
