“ BANGANGA” This is one of the ancient time holy places of Shivpuri (Madhaya Pradesh). It is said that Arjun take out the water from the earth by his arrow to quench the thirst of Bhishm Pitamah at the time of Mahabharat. There are 52 Kund here. The people visit here with a religious mind.
As we know it is completely a religious place & people of India are mostly religious, so I want to explore this attraction as well as Shivpuri. this place can be very attractive for tourist. People want that type of place where they can feel relax and enjoy all activities. this place is perfect for this. you can enjoy bath in kund n play game in the park. Almost there is very big temple of “LORD SHIVA”.

Various dimensions of sustainability destination:-
1.Economic sustainability :- restoration of
political and ethical
factors to a central place in economic life and
Small Scale Business :-They can start small scale business with available resources at their locality. Like they can collect leafs & make disposable plates. And, forest materials they also can use.
Self Help Groups :- There are lot of Microfinance corporations are available they can take financial help from them & can start Self Help Groups, can start new production like Incense sticks, Gum.
2.Socio cultural sustainability :-
Conservation of cultural sites through participative cultural programs.
The symposium focused on conservation issues in Shivpuri, with particular attention to policies and conditions specific to the region. Individuals from various places participated. In an effort to open a dialogue that would ultimately advance the interests of the nations involved regarding cultural heritage protection, the symposium attempted to identify themes that were of recognized and shared interest for the entire region.
3.environmental sustainability :-
Conservation & management level appropriate to society.
In Banganga there is no such management level set up. Only people manage themselves with their own management setup and the functionality is also depend upon their own interest to do something new but how long they can keep such kind of practice which is not at all sustainable.
4.Political sustainability :-
The concept of ‘sustainable public administration’ is increasingly important in the development debate.
The framework shows how, in different contexts, sustainable livelihoods are achieved through access to arrange of livelihood resources (natural, economic, human and social capitals) which are combined in the pursuit of different livelihood strategies (agricultural intensification or intensification, livelihood diversification and migration).
Carrying capacity :-
The carrying capacity is very less in Banganga:-
Due to the following reasons…….
Lacking in Infrastructure.
Lacking in Superstructure.
Lacking in Accommodation facility.
Poor communication facility.
Less planning & implementations.
People are not broad minded; don’t want to indulge new & beneficial practices.
No public & private partnership.
Analysis synthesis of information :-
Banganga, Shivpuri is one of the most backward districts not just in the state of Madhya Pradesh, but also in the country. Well known for its tigers and rich minerals, Shivpuri is also very popular for early marriages.
In Banganga also the Saharia tribes are concentrated in the states of Madhya Pradesh (Mostly in Shivpuri district) and. Originally forest dwellers, they have been forced to move out of their original vocation and livelihood due to increasing depletion of forest resources.
The last few years have seen a number of powerful and innovative thrusts towards community empowerment, local self-Government and decentralization of decision-making especially at the grass-roots level. A number of lessons have been learnt from the successes and problems of these efforts.
The best way to eliviate poverty in Banganga :-
Formulation of development policy :-
Govt. must take initiation towards the development of Banganga as it is the most potential pilgrimage tourist destination in Shivpuri.
Govt. must go for development in amenities like infrastructure & superstructure through public private partnership.
Govt. must emphasize upon the education of the local public.
Govt. must provide some financial help to the interested parties to set up their own small scale business at a lower interest.
NGO’s may come forward towards developing this small area as pollution free & one of the future prospect Eco- Tourism destination.
They must be aware of the importance of education in our day to day life or they may be aware of some vocational education.
One committee must be there to monitor all the above policies which can be formulated.
The committee must be headed by the most educated people & women must participate in the decision making process.
Women empowerment should be given the first preference in any planning.
Youth must take the lead to start all kind of development activities & they must take the pain to meet the Govt. authority so that to generate some kind of investment (Direct or Indirect).
They must keep their environment clean & green to avoid any commuted decease.
The education system must be in proper way for all class people despite of age discrimination.
Data Collection is an important aspect of any type of research study. Inaccurate data collection can impact the results of a study and ultimately lead to invalid results.
Data collection methods for impact evaluation vary along a continuum. At the one end of this continuum are quantitative methods and at the other end of the continuum are Qualitative methods for data collection
I have collected the data with the help of the local people,the district HQ and my self knowledge.
My project is concentrating upon the poverty of the local people of Banganga and their living, some how I have given effort to make Banganga a popular tourist destination, if the above facts will be effectual within short period of time frame.
