Why can't we have the Udaipur way of life, everywhere?One is told that in Udaipur. several years ago, there was a big exercise to conserve water in some lakes and ponds. The Government and the private agencies got together to save every drop of rainwater. One is also told that there is some sort of rainwater harvesting going on in this beautiful town. Though I had been there for just a day, I could not see much, as it was night time when I was free. This happened years ago.
The locals proudly talked about their water conservation efforts. In several parts of India, the monsoon is horrible this year. The amount of rainfall is far less when compared to the normal.
There is bound to be a horrible summer in April and May 2019, and we better get prepared for this summer. The key question is: should we not have models such as Udaipur copied everywhere?
Should we not do a lot more than what has already been done?
