The 'Apna Talab Abhiyaan' programme promotes the building of private talabs on peoples' lands to help improve groundwater recharge in Bundelkhand.

Charkhari, a princely state of India in the colonial period was once a beautiful settlement founded by Saurabh Singh Bundela, a Rajput King. Acceded to India post-Independence, the town is now located in Mahoba, Uttar Pradesh. The place was home to intricate water management systems in the past. According to the settlement records for the Bundelkhand region, the region had numerous talabs-about 962 during the Chandela period-of which only 421 remain today. These old talabs (water bodies) showcase the skill of the builders of this period.

We are located at Charkhari, Dist. Mahoba, U.P. in the Bundelkhand region. Our problem is that though our open well [from which we draw water] is more than sufficient for our buildings daily needs [ about 4000 litres]; The water quality is brackish, hard and therefore cannot be used for drinking. It is ok for the bathrooms etc though I suspect that scales will build up over the years.
