Heavy Rain in Kerala

Pallichal panchayat in Thiruvananthapuram district has turned a neglected pond into a clean and beautiful space that is also helping alleviate drought.

Pallichal panchayat in Thiruvananthapuram is one of its best performing panchayats. It has received a number of awards for achieving high literacy levels, keeping up good sanitation practices and for implementing a number of agricultural and irrigation initiatives. It was truly unbelievable that the people of this panchayat had allowed the three-acre pond located here to reach the state of complete neglect that it had a few years ago. The pond was filled with stagnant and dirty water and had also become a haven for antisocial elements because of which people hardly went there.
