Came across this piece trying to get some info on rainwater harvesting ideas.By ZenRainMan on the Rainwater Blog - Bangalore - the water in summer.
Some good advise. Makes a lot of sense. But how long will it be before our actions start making sense too?
"Unfortunately for us the vision for water is a 50 year one and the vision of democracy at local levels is for 5 years at the most. This mismatch does not yield optimal solutions. Hence instead of demanding more recharge structures and the cleaning and protection of lakes we demand more bore-wells to extract more water and deplete groundwaters further."
