Working as a member of the volunteer team from JJSS (Jan Jagran Sakhti Sangathan) that conducted social audits in three panchayats, I had the opportunity to meet Comrade. Giranand Paswan, a Communist Party of India member and former upa-mukhiya and ward member of Gorraha-Vishanpur panchayat. Com. Giranand is a district council member of CPI, state council member of Khet Mazdoor Union (Union of peasants) and former director of Indian Public Theatre Association (IPTA) of Araria district. Warm and knowledgeable, Com. Giranand struck a cord with the audit team at once.
