There is a pond in front of my house. The whole area is known by that pond and it also gets included in our address. Recently, the owner of the pond has started filling it with soil and also started construction of house on that pond. The whole area is facing the scarcity of water and it seems it will get worse after the pond gets filled. How can I ensure that this illegal activity gets stopped or is it legal for the owner to fill his own pond? Can I directly write a letter to the DM? Please guide me. The pond belongs to Darbhanga from Bihar.

Kishan Yadav has a lot in common with the popular flute-playing god whose namesake he is. They share a name, a caste, a profession, and the land they live on. Despite the separation of 8,000 years between their lifetimes, the two Kishans would be comfortable speaking to each other - Maithili is the oldest living language spoken today. There is also a vast gulf between them.

Darbhanga's many ponds which are centuries-old, are disappearing thanks to land sharks. While local groups are working to protect them, they aren't getting the required help from the authorities.

The vast plain in Mithilanchal (now a part of Bihar) wore a festive look despite the early hour. People had been gathering since the wee hours of the morning. Children wore their festive best while women, flowers in their hair and anticipation in their eyes. The air was redolent with the fragrance of the ceremonial fire and the aroma of roasting gram and fried sweets. Nearby, a magnificent horse bedecked with flowers pawed the ground impatiently.

It was the middle of the 12th century and celebrations were in full swing as Raja Gang Singh Dev was sponsoring a talaab.
