"The wisdom that was !" - A talk by Anupam Mishra on the traditional water harvesting systems of the Thar desert, Rajasthan

The Wisdom That Was !, captures a very interesting and informative talk by Anupam Mishra, on traditional water harvesting systems of the Rajasthan desert.

This talk is part of a multimedia course series developed by Arghyam for the India Water Portal. The talk is in Hindi, with some subtitles in English.

Shri Anupam Mishra has worked in the field of environment and water conservation for many decades, and is currently with the Gandhi Peace Foundation New Delhi.

His books on the work of communities organising themselves, to harvest and manage water - Aaj Bhi Khare Hain Taalab and Rajasthan Ki Rajat Boondein, are considered landmark works in the field, and continue to inspire several individuals even today, to take up work on setting up and reviving such time-tested water harvesting systems.
