Let's get back to rain water harvesting in a very big waySome years ago, there was a spate of articles on how rainwater harvesting and management of rainwater in the numerous ponds of Udaipur city went a long way in making that city of Rajasthan, a great place to learn water management. We need similar success stories. Members may please highlight similar success stories from your own places.
Rainwater harvesting is not rocket science. It requires a very minimum investment. Ms. Jayalalitha of the AIADMK, during her lifetime, made this a compulsory requirement in the city of Chennai and this improved the water table to a great extent. Desilting of ponds and lakes is urgently called for, throughout India. One really does not know what AP is doing to compensate for the massive loss of very rich fertile lands that were used to build the new Capital city of Amaravathi. One also needs to know how much more can be done for rain-water harvesting throughout India.
Members may please share any bit of news of any success story in their area.
