Industries restricted to cut trees in UP and MP

Excessive sand quarrying to meet the demands of the construction industry is destroying local irrigation systems in Anantapur. Which will prevail - agriculture or construction?

The construction industry went through a boom in the 1990s due to more people demanding and affording houses. This put a lot of pressure on the Pennar area in Andhra Pradesh. Sandmining, which is the process of taking sand, became rampant at that time. This caused changes in the river’s ability to carry water, blocked the water flow, impaired the drainage and almost destroyed the entire river system.

This beautifully shot film narrates the history of Timbaktu in Ananatapur District, and through it also describes the impact of the Green Revolution on the land.

'Timbaktu' describes the motivation, efforts and results of the Timbaktu collective started in the 1980s by Mary and Bablu Ganguly.  Just as important, it narrates the story of a couple with a dream, and how they made it come true. Mary and Bablu come across as an intensely likeable pair who are passionate about the land they live  in and the people they share it with. This perhaps, is the true charm of this award-winning film- Timbaktu won the National Award (2012) for the best Environmental film.

Watch a trailer of the film below:

The 5 stage solar water purification system gives 1500 litres of drinking water in 24 hours in Puttapurhi, Anantapur district, Andhra Pradesh

The Sustainable Living Centre is located at Puttaparthi, Anantapur District, Andhra Pradesh.  The 5 stage solar water purification system gives 1500 litres of drinking water in 24 hours, if it is running continuously and if it has a constant source of water supply connected to it. The system is capable of filtering:  fluoride, arsenic, bacteria, pesticide and more and doesn’t require electricity to run, so it is a good solution for villages that do not have 24/7 power supply.
