Guizhou contemporary "Yugong": open up three mountains, dig out canals, and introduce the water of life into every household

What is the spirit of the red flag canal—— "Self reliance, hard work, unity and cooperation, selfless dedication", these short 16 words condense the hard work of generations of people. For our happy and beautiful life, countless ancestors and predecessors worked hard to create a rich life for our generation. Those predecessors who never forget to dig wells should be remembered by us from generation to generation. Many selfless people sacrificed their comfort in order to make the masses live a good life.

Similar to the spirit of the red flag canal is the "dafaqu". The name of "dafaqu" comes from the name of Huang Dafa, a great hero in the eyes of the people. This canal stretches three mountains and has a total length of more than 9000 meters. It is hard to imagine that this large project is undertaken by a village party secretary who is nearly half a hundred years old. Huang Dafa became a monk halfway from a layman who didn't know anything about water conservancy to a leader who was proficient in water conservancy. We can imagine the hard work during this period.

Huang Dafa was born in 1935 in the midst of war. After the founding of the people's Republic of China, he was in his 20s and decided to join the party because he was deeply cared for by the party since childhood. China in the early days of the founding of the people's Republic of China was a country without enough food and clothing, especially for his hometown Zunyi. In addition to the three-year natural disaster, his environment is a remote mountain. It is not only difficult to communicate with the outside world, but also the most serious is the lack of water.

Water is the source of life. Without water, where does food come from? Don't mention a nourishing and rich life. In order to drink a sip of water, they have to walk four or five kilometers of mountain roads every day. Farmers can't even plant the most basic wheat and feed cattle and sheep. As a team leader, Huang Dafa was hungry all the way, so he had a bold and great idea in his heart since childhood. He wanted everyone to drink clean water.

This was an unreachable wish at that time, especially for Huang Dafa, who had only primary school education, he had no water conservancy experience or learned the knowledge of water conservancy engineering. For him at that time, this ideal was just an unreachable dream. He just heard that he could draw water from the water source, but he was really black eyed about what to do. The promise he made to the villagers finally inspired him to explore. He knew that practice produced true knowledge.

He organized a team of villagers. After a long field visit, he decided to dig through the mountain blocking the water source and build a tunnel from it. However, due to the wrong method and their limited funds and resources, the prototype of this large hair canal was only 116 meters in the end, and the problem of water shortage was not solved in the end. From the captain to the village party secretary, he has been working hard for this matter. Between the ages of 24 and 40, he is not only the passage of years, but also the broken heart for the people and the party.

Until 1989, the opportunity came. At that time, he heard that there was an opportunity to learn water conservancy knowledge in the nearby village's Fengxiang Water Conservancy Station. Because he has only the educational level of primary school, it was very difficult to learn at the beginning. He never misses every class and every opportunity to ask questions. He is bound to master every question. After several years of study, he finally understood what was wrong with his original plan. After all, the blind man felt the elephant and didn't understand the essence of the matter. Finally, he had to detour.

After this baptismal study, he applied for the proposal of repairing channels in 1992. This time, he was prepared and finally stopped being confused. The organization quickly agreed to his request and provided financial support to him and the villagers. During the digging of canals, he never pretended his work to others. He is nearly 60 years old and often works on dangerous cliffs. When he heard the news that his daughter and grandson were critically ill and died during the construction, the pain of white haired people sending black haired people made him depressed for a time. He looked at the steel bar in his hand and remembered the story of Dayu's three times of not entering the house in ancient times. He remembered that Wu Zutai, who built the red flag canal, died in the cave of the red flag canal at the age of 27, regardless of her mother and wife who were critically ill at home for work. He thought:

The villagers' grain is more important!

Carrying the mission of the people and the party, the canal was finally completed two years later. When the first handful of clear water spread into the village, he thought of his late children and grandchildren, but he didn't regret it, because he knew that the descendants of the whole village could eat fragrant rice and drink clean hot water from now on.

In 2017, Huang Dafa was named one of the figures who moved China. His deeds in repairing channels are known to audiences all over the country. In this project spanning three generations, he has made great contributions to the life and development of the people in his hometown, improving the quality of life of the villagers, and making the villagers move towards a well-off life. The road has taken a big step. This is an unforgettable experience on the road to a well-off society, and it is also the only way to narrow the gap between the rich and the poor.
