I stayed in Bhongir. Nalgonda District, Telangana from 1988 to 95. I shifted to Hyderabad in 1995. In Bhongir water scarcity was there during summer. So our company used to purchase water and supply it to all the officers working in the company and staying in Bhongir. Daily one water tanker with two workers used to go to the houses of all officers and give them water as required. Those days even in Hyderabad water scarcity was there. We used to save water as much as possible.

Even this challenging situation would ease
During my childhood I had to visit my village to take provisions and some other essential items for my grandmother who was living there alone. In the village there was no tap water and we had to go about half kilometre from our house to the nearest spring water fall and fill a pitcher from it and then bring it back to the house. As it was a hilly terrain it was very difficult for me as a child to bring that pitcher back to the house. My grandmother could also bring a small pitcher on her head to the house and was always encouraging and motivating me to fill my pitcher up to the top and bring it to the house.That water was like a divine nectar for us and it served us for half day after which we again went to get it filled from the spring water fall. Every drop of that water was important to us.
