    Report on the development reached on Mundunari is positive and wellcome but incomplete, iam blaming my journalist friends for that in the sense that only someone from Mundunari knows where is the village located, there is nothing in the report to indicate the location at which local government area etc.

      Sad but more sadly is the failure of editors to ask reporters for deeper information.
