Ayodhya Hills in West Bengal had never seen electricity. The Santhal tribe there always lived in darkness and did not know if the situation would ever change.

The village has no proper road connectivity to the cities and it takes at least two to three hours even to reach a nearby hospital in case of emergencies.
