Something profound

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

KODALDHOWA

Situated about eight kilometers from the head quarters of Zikzak Block Development Office and nearest to the village Nogorpara where the 'Katta Beel' exists, the village Kodaldhowa has also a legend pond or water tank with a mixed population of 410 in '1981.

The village owes its name, Kodaldhowa to a pond which had been excavated by the same legendary king Rengtha who had excavated 'Katta Bil' and whose nickname was Pagla Raja. This pond was excavated to wash the spades everyday while digging Katta Beel at Nogorpara.

Kodhaldhowa Pond spreads over an area of 14 bighas of land which is smaller than Katta Bil. The adjacent village to the pond had been named after the pond. The villagers are mostly Hajongs. This pond had been long neglected and thus covered with weeds. Nearby a small temple was constructed by the villagers which has an underground entrance to go down to this pond.
