It was the third day of the digital journey and the Red Rickshaw Revolution reached Baran in Rajasthan on 30 November, 2014. After inaugurations of two digital Community Information Resource Centre (dCIRC) in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, and Alwar in Rajasthan, all attention is now on Bakanpura Panchayat in Rajasthan.
The Chief Guest, Mr. Lalit Kumar Gupta, District Magistrate of Baran, inaugurated the dCIRC. He and the Sarpanch, Mrs. Reena Sahariya, were given a warm and traditional welcome by senior members of Digital Empowerment Foundation, dCIRC staff, and volunteers.
In 2013, the Red Rickshaw Revolution (RRR) journey ended in Maharashtra. It was only natural that RRR resumed its 2014 journey from the same state.
The journey started on 28 November 2014 in Aurangabad. A day before the journey, a red painted rickshaw with the RRR doll went around the entire Panchayat playing the ‘Dhur Dhur’ title song of the journey, announcing the advent of RRR once again and the inauguration of a community centre called digital Community Information Resource Centre (dCIRC).
The dCIRC coordinator and trainer took Mr. Konkani around the centre and explained how the centre will work. After the inauguration, Mr. Konkani and Mrs. Sankapale were taken to a cultural show organized in the vicinity in the RRR rickshaw.
