A village of nine families bounded by a river on one side and thick forests on the other, lived here in Kilcoupe, an Irula hamlet in the Nilgiris.

The drying up of local water sources has meant that water supply has been erratic [3] and people have had to depend on purchasing water through tankers and tapping springs and open wells.
