26岁工程师让10个池塘重获生机

Ramveer Tanwar, who has a BTech in mechanical engineering, recently quit his job with a multinational to focus on a cause dear to him — saving ponds. “Water conservation is a more significant career for me than sitting in an AC office,” says Greater Noida’s resi nt water crusader, who has been instrumental in reviving 10 village ponds in the last five years.

拥有机械工程学位的拉姆维尔•坦瓦尔最近辞去了在一家跨国公司的工作,专注于一项他珍视的事业——拯救池塘。“对我来说,保护水源比坐在空调办公室里上班更有意义。”这位来自大诺伊达镇的水斗士说到。在过去五年里,他让10个池塘重获了生机。

Greater Noida, part of Gautam Buddh Nagar district, is home to hundreds of smaller ponds have been neglected — until now.

位于Gautam Buddh Nagar地区的大诺伊达有数百个小池塘,直到现在,这些小池塘一直被忽视。

A farmer’s son, Tanwar grew up in Greater Noida’s water bodies. The bigger ones, like the 60-acre Surajpur wetland, are prected by forest conservation rules, but Dadha village, an area that has witnessed water shortages time and again. He noticed how small water bodies, around which community life traditionally revolves in the rural hinterland of Uttar Pradesh, were often treated as garbage dumps. “I grew up seeing this mistreatment of water bodies, even when we were facing droughts,” he says.

坦瓦尔的父亲是农民,他在大诺伊达长大。那里有面积较大的湿地,如占地60英亩的苏拉吉布尔湿地,受森林保护法的保护,但达达哈村却一再出现水资源短缺。他注意到,在北方邦偏远的农村地区,社区生活传统上都是依靠小水体。他说:“在我成长的过程中,我目睹了对水源的糟蹋,即使我们面临干旱也存在对水源的糟蹋。”

Then a 21-year-old college student, Tanwar organised a jal chaupal (meeting place) of villagers to discuss the need for cleaning up the ponds.

当时21岁的坦瓦尔还是一名大学生,他组织村民开会,讨论清理池塘的必要性。

Engineer gives tuitions to meet expenses, secures CSR funding. Teams of volunteers were set up to create “a sense of ownership over the project”. Tanwar said, “Soon, jal chaupal became a platform for us to go from village to village and speak about the need to stop throwing garbage into our ponds.”

坦瓦尔授课赚钱以筹备资金,并组建了志愿者团队,以创造“对项目的主人翁感”。坦瓦尔说:“很快,jal chaupal就成了谈论停止向池塘里扔垃圾的平台, 让我们从一个村庄走向另一个村庄。”

The first pond cleanup the volunteers undertook back in 2014 was in a village called Dabra. “It was full of sludge, hyacinth and garbage. It took us months to just clear the surface. Then, we treated the water, created a filter sy em and a sort of canal to help farmers use the water for farming,” says Tanwar, who spent his weekends on this work. To ensure its upkeep, they encouraged fishery in the now-pristine pond.

2014年,志愿者们第一次清理的池塘位于一个叫达布拉的村庄。坦瓦尔说:“这个池塘满是污泥和垃圾。我们花了几个月的时间才把表面清理干净。然后,我们对水进行处理,建了一个过滤系统,挖了一条沟渠,帮助农民引水用于耕作。我们鼓励在这个池塘里养鱼。”

To get more manpower, he turned to social media. “Our Facebook page, ‘Boond Boond Pani’, now has over one lakh members. Each time we wanted volunteers, we would make an announcement on the page. Almost a hundred volunteers would reach the conservation location, often in far-flung villages, every time,” he says.

为了获得更多的人手,他求助于社交媒体。坦瓦尔称:“我们的Facebook主页‘Boond Boond Pani’现在有超过10万名成员。每当需要志愿者的时候,我们都会在页面上发布公告。几乎每一次都有100名志愿者前来帮忙”

Rohit Adhana of Kasana village has been involved with Tanwar’s conservation efforts for a few years now. “It is important that villagers come forward and help save their water sources. We are showing them it is possible,” he says.

来自卡萨纳村的Rohit Adhana几年来一直参与坦瓦尔的保护工作。他表示。“村民们站出来帮助保护水源是很重要的。我们正在向他们证明这是可能的。”

Tanwar, who has quit his job and does tuitions in the evening to meet his expenses, isn’t on his own anymore. His work got some attention last year after he created the hashtag #SelfieWithPond encouraging villagers to send photos with water bodies, and sponsorship opportunities have been coming up. “After a lot of effort, we got our first CSR funding of Rs 2.5 lakh in 2018,” he says. He used the money to complete many of his ongoing pond projects. Restoring a small pond takes six to seven months and anywhere between Rs 1 lakh and Rs 25 lakh, depending on its condition, This year, he received Rs 7 lakh funding from a company to restore a pond in Ghangola village. The pond has been desilted, and will be fully restored and beautified in a few months.

坦瓦尔已经辞了工作,每天晚上都要讲课赚钱来维持开销,现在他已经不是一个人在战斗了。去年,他在“池塘自拍”(SelfieWithPond)这个话题标签上鼓励村民们上传自己与水体的照片,他的作品受到了一些关注,赞助也随之而来。他说:“经过不懈努力,我们在2018年获得了首笔25万卢比的资金。”他用这笔钱完成了他正在进行的许多池塘治理项目。治理一个小池塘需要6到7个月的时间,根据池塘的情况,治理费用在10万到250万卢比之间。今年,他从一家公司获得了70万卢比的资金,用于治理安哥拉村的一个池塘。这个池塘的淤泥已被清除,几个月后将完全恢复原状并得到改善。

Pawan Khatana, a resi nt of Bharana village where a pond was revived, says the spirit of water conservation is spreading. “After hearing about what Ramveer has done at our village pond, a lot of other villages have shown interest. Some people even want to do the cleanup themselves now.”

Bharana村的一位居民帕万·哈塔纳表示,保护水源的精神正在传播。“在听到坦瓦尔清理了我们村里的池塘后,很多其他村庄都表现出了兴趣。有些人现在甚至想自己动手清理。”
