In the top photo a Kolkata Municipal Corporation water tanker is delivering water in the pouring rain. "Why have we set up our water management so that we need to deliver water, even while it is pouring", he wonders. The next set of photos show a clogged stormwater drain. A municipal worker clears out the drain, in the same pouring rain, so that the water can flow freely and prevent flooding. "Whatever kind of system we have, finally it comes down to workers like her, who keep it running".
