I am looking for information on water related issues in Raichur district. This includes information on  consumption patterns, water used in agriculture, women and water  as well as notions of water in songs, stories, festivals.

Could you please guide me with respect to any such information?  If the information is available physically, I can come over to the Arghyam office to have a look at it.

Regards,

Veena
