The Name Tumbdi:

The village of Tumbdi is located on a small hill. The soil and rocks here have a distinct RED colour. Hence the name “Tumbdi”, which literally means an earthen pot made of red clay that quenches everyone’s thirst with its sweet, naturally chilled pure water. Just like the people from Tumbdi.
True to its name, our village is rich not just financially but more importantly in cultural, spiritual, literary and community wealth as well. There are a variety of ongoing community service projects at any given time with the people trying to help by donating knowledge, finance and most importantly time. With more than 12 different communities of different faiths and religions residing side-by-side Tumbdi is a true example of Unity in Diversity of India!

Geography

The Past :

The Mahajan is very old and is committed to uplift the village and the people of the village. Since the past the Mahajan is dedicated to uplift the village and the community as a whole. They have helped the villagers in many ways like there was a School in the village which was not operational at all but the Mahajan made it functional to create literacy and educate the young blood of the village. There were no medical facilities in the Tumbdi, they got a “Sarvajanik Dava Khana” (a dispensary) by appealing to the local board. The Mahajan-wadi was long awaited by the people which was finally created along with the Atithi Gruha which is made available for people to stay who do not have their homes inside the village. The main role of the Mahajan-wadi is to offer food and stay at subsidized rates. Not just such big things but the Mahajan has always helped every needy person by all possible means.


The Present :

The Present committee is as dedicated as the past ones. They have not just successfully carried the legacy forward but also improvised it at brought it to completely different level.

  • Providing Scholarships and Loans for the students to study.
  • Helping the people during Natural Calamities.
  • Provides Subsidized food and stay through the Mahajan-wadi and Atithi Gruha.
  • For the people who are residing permanently in the village like the localites like the Thakrai or the Rajputs etc., a dispensary was made so that the medical facilities could reach them everyday.
  • There is Library which is managed by the Mahajan.
