The video tells the story of the women of Podapathar village in Himgir panchayat in Odisha who, through their collective efforts, managed to improve the drinking water situation in their village.

Women of Podapathar village in Sundargarh district in Odisha have become an inspiration for millions of women in the country now, thanks to their determination to improve the drinking water situation in their village. 

Earlier the women had to fetch water for domestic use at 4 am. The nearest drinking water source was 1 km away. "In 2002, the panchayat installed two hand pumps at Podapathar but the water from the hand pump was not fit for drinking," says Dutiya Kisan, a woman in her 50s.

I had undertaken the drilling of a borewell at my house located near the river bank ‘Bramhani’-village in Bonai Sub-Division, 40-50 Kms from Rourkela, Orissa.The operator could not dig after 45 feet as the conditions were of wet soil with small and medium stones. The diameter of the failed borewell is six inches. Surrounding places have functional borewells.

 The operator was suggesting to call for another digging machine having rotary facility (rotary compressor) for drilling.Kindly suggest a suitable solution to this problem.

I am living in Rourkela, Orissa. I have  a bore well connection for water supply. There are two problems I am facing:

1. Every drop of water  leaves a white mark behind. This white mark is powdery n can be scratched with some effort. All the utensils and all the sanitary items on which water has fallen have become spotted. They disapear when washed with water n then reappear when dry. I guess its calcium.
