People who are loyal to their duties, who consider public service as God’s prasad and blessings and continue to do it selflessly, there is also a personality Ramkumar Ranolia in the chain of those great personalities. Those who have dedicated themselves to play an important role in the development of the village, the destruction of superstition, and the religious and cultural works of the society. Born on February 14, 1954, in Prajapati Samaj of village Bheri Akbarpur, in the house of mother Mrs. Dwarka Devi and father Mr. Tokhram, Ramkumar was interested to be involved in various social and activities since childhood. While getting primary education in his village, at that time there was a rule to pass only one class in 1 year, but in front of his sharp intellect, the Block Education Department changed the rules and allowed him to pass the class within 6 months and he Passed the fourth fifth class in the same year 1964-65. After passing 10th class from Uklana Mandi, he got admission in Pre-University in Dayanand College, Hisar. Apart from this, Narwana took carpenter training from ITI.

He also gave his services under Home Guard. In year 1974, NC Jindal was a clerk in the hospital, and in 1976, when the district Kumar Sabha Hisar was first formed, he was chosen as the secretary, due to his beautiful writing, during the same time Master Mishri Lal Ji got him as an assistant clerk / additional teacher. Got an appointment in Senior Model School, Hisar. At that time there was no MLA in society. At that time he along with Professor Late Parmanand Ji, Late Jaynarayan Verma Ji, who were struggling for the society, made the society aware. At the same time, sitting in the office of the Sabha located in the potter Dharamshala Hisar, sitting permanently as a minister, he went ahead by guiding the unemployed youths in the right direction. Made meaningful efforts to end social conflicts. Efforts were successful and in the year 1977, Shri Jaynarayan Verma Ji was elected from Barwala Vidhan Sabha i.e. became the first Prajapati MLA of Haryana. To stop the arbitrariness of the village panchayat and to appreciate the efforts of right works, Ranolia formed the Yuva Gram Vikas Samiti Bheriyakbar Pur in the same year 1977. And not only exposed the illegal works done by the Panchayat but also got them rectified.
In the year 1982, he contested the election of Barwala Assembly as a candidate in charge, out of 11 candidates, he stood at number five in terms of votes. In the year 1988, to stop the insurgency spreading from Punjab to Haryana, according to the orders of the Haryana Government, peace committees were formed in every village and Mr. Ranolia was also elected as the head of the Bheri Akbarpur peace committee. He actively participated in the Akshar movement run by Literacy Mission Hisar and took training of KRP and did special publicity work through Kala Jatha, that is why D.O. The then Deputy Commissioner, Hisar, Mr. PD Bidhan, with the help of Hisar, called in the CVA School Hisar program and honored him with a citation. He was fond of writing poetry since childhood, in year 1974, while working in Night College Dayanand Mahavidyalaya and NC Jindal Eye Hospital as a clerk the day, his first book was printed in his mirror. Contemporary poets Shri Innocenti Hisari Ji, Bhagirath Ji injured’, Sajjan Hisari Ji, Shri Chetram Ji Rahwar Ji, etc. along with many poets continued to participate in poetry seminars.
Due to the poor financial condition of the house, Ramkumar Ranolia could not study much and left his studies in the second year of BA and also did a job in various institutions to run the house. In the year 1984-85, “Haryana Vikas Samiti” was formed by the intellectuals of Hisar under the presidency of Shri Atmaram Godara. Publication of a weekly newspaper called “Lok Dhvani” was also started under the guidance of innocent Hisari Ji, for which he was made its representative. Ranoliya has always been a particular opponent of caste and creed. It has been a special quality in them to take everyone along, that is why in the year 1984-85, Ramkumar Ranoliya and his wife, Mrs. Hariya Devi, were elected members of the “Mini Bank Management Committee” from a musketeer of Bheriakbarpur. A poor potter couple getting this honor in a Jat-dominated village is a record in the history of the village so far. In the Panchayat elections of 1994, the whole village decided that Ramkumar Ranolia would be made the sarpanch this time, and 200 men went to his house and informed Ranolia Ji about their intentions and the oral resolution passed. And it was almost decided that now Ramkumar Ranolia will be the next sarpanch. But the sarpanch post in the draw came for reservation women. Still, the people of the village did not listen and his wife was also elected Sarpanch with full support and to date, Ramkumar has been addressing and giving respect to Ranoliya as Sarpanch. During that time the record-breaking works done by the Ranolia sarpanch couple not only changed the map of the village but also cleared the agricultural and non-agricultural areas suppressed by the powerful people.
Just from last year, you have started writing history, tell the original story of the village or history with your pen. This is a matter of great responsibility. Remembering everything and writing with suitable words keeping pace with the times is not an easy task though. But when did Ranoliya choose the easy job? –
Ranoliya is the creature of the struggle and will go into the struggle.
Before leaving the era, something new will definitely be given.
