Malwa is thirsty

Summer is around the corner and though this year will not be as bad as last year due to abundant rain but alternate day supply of 1 hour of water is something no city can be proud of.

I found this wonderful article on India environment portal

I have written about water woes of indore before here , here , here & http://indoreheartofindia.blogspot.com/2008/11/missing-poll-issue-narmada.html & also here , here

and my conclusion is that water problem is here to stay becoz our leaders are part of problem and not the solution

1. them make good money in this whole tanker business every year
2. manning tanker and distributing water becomes alibi for not doing any development work in area. One sure shot plank to win election is late night tanker in localities manned by your leader.
3. All talabs and their catchment area is being converted to concrete jungle
4. Those with means exploiting ground water aquifer like there is no tomorrow.

In relative sense we are better today , but it is an ostrich like situation of assuming that there is no problem.

IMC's annual budget is not enough to meet cost of bringing narmada to indore but as it sounds catchy everyone is for it.
