  • Ghiyas-ud-din-khilji is a man about whom history is confused. Contemporary records speak of 'a lover of peace, particular in his daily prayers'.

It was not enough for the Mughals to just harvest rainwater but the structure needed to form a lilting backdrop to life in their palaces as exemplified by the Jahaz Mahal. What can we learn from it?

Although fluoride contamination was identified in Dhar, Madhya Pradesh a decade ago. children of some villages still continue to fall victim to skeletal and dental fluorosis causing bone deformities.

Once water-deficient, Didakhedi in Madhya Pradesh is now a village with year-round water supply and a sense of community and belonging.

The 200 odd residents of Didakhedi, a sleepy village just 13 kms from Sehore town in Madhya Pradesh, never had adequate water. Two decades ago, most of the farming in the village was done during the monsoons. The village had no electricity and a lone diesel pump operated the shallow dug wells to irrigate some lands during the winter. These shallow wells, their only source of water, would turn dry during the scorching summer months, leaving the people distressed.

Hello,

I have dug a borwell at 650 feet depth but it failed. We stopped drilling further as we found semi dry black mud. The plots adjacent to ours on both sides have water in their borewells at 350 feet and 400 feet respectively.

I would like to know

  1. If blasting will help me get water in the bore
  2. Will the same bore at 650 feet yield water after monsoons
  3. Should I try a bore at another location in the plot

Please let me know.

Regards,

Manu
