A remote village, Muchinthala in Chinna Chintakunta mandal of Mahabubnagar district, has achieved the distinction of becoming the first digital village in the country with full of computers, thanks to the facilities being provided by the Dream Village Foundation for the last several years. Rather strangely, it lacks basic infrastructure like roads, bus transport and others. However, it is in the forefront regarding development among all villages in the district.
In a happy and welcome development even farmers have become well-versed in operating computers. With the power of acquired know-how now they are able to take up modern practices with the assistance of the National Digital Literacy Mission. All these developments have become possible with Kunchem Balu, one of the directors of Cognizant Technology Solutions, marrying a local woman.
