Life in Dabi: The Last Indian Village on the LoC in Mendhar, Poonch District

Dabi, nestled just 600 meters from the Line of Control (LoC), stands as the last Indian village in Mendhar sub-division of Poonch district. Its existence is marked by resilience, challenges, and a unique way of life. Let’s delve into the daily experiences of the villagers who call Dabi home. Water is a precious resource in Dabi. The villagers often grapple with inadequate water supply. Wells and hand pumps are their lifelines, but during dry spells, even these sources run low. Education is essential for progress, but Dabi faces limitations.

The village school, if it exists, may lack proper infrastructure, qualified teachers, and necessary resources. Access to medical facilities remains a challenge. The nearest health center might be several kilometers away, and emergency situations become critical due to the distance. This is the story of this village.
