Bhandara District

Caught between Malguzaars and the state government, the Malguzari tanks were left to die many years ago. A lone man spearheaded their revival in 2008.

Malguzari tanks were ponds made for water harvesting by the Malguzaars, who were zamindars or tenants in eastern Vidarbha, Maharashtra two centuries ago.These tanks provided water for irrigation and also increased the availability of fish for local consumption.

I am basically from a "major rice producing area" in Bhandara District, Maharashtra, region name is "Chauras". We used to take 2 crops yearly of rice, So you can understand the amount of water we were having. Our major water source was ground water & water pumps used for irrigation.
