Village of Unmarried People

A remote village Barwaan Kala, west of Bihar in the heart of the Kaimur Hills in India, is the home of some 121 bachelors between the ages of 16 and 80.


The village roads are very poor. So people of other places can not visit the place. Also travellers are not reluctant to travel the village, so it has become known locally as the “Village of Unmarried People”.


The villagers dreamed that they would be able to have a road developed & they would easily attract women from local villages to come and visit them.


It seems that now their dream is now going true. During the last state assembly elections, a party candidate, Ram Chandra Singh Yadav, visited the village and promised that if elected, he would build them a road. He also made one promise that he didn’t keep; namely, that he would not get married unless he could build the villagers a road.


He also added,“The biggest problem for us and for outsiders is the difficult hilly terrain to pass through.”


The men got tired of waiting for help, and armed with tools, decided to take matters into their own hands. But unfortunately the area is within a zone that protects wild life and where guidelines for construction projects are strictly enforced.


Hopefully at last the government will take pity on these poor men and let them finish their road that can only lead to the better things in life. But the village people are hoping that it will not done at the eleventh hour.
