Wardha District

Study reveals women are central to both food production and preparation, as well as to domestic water provisioning.

The water sector remains male dominated at different scales, from engineers and technocrats responsible for designing irrigation systems, to upper caste and upper class men who decide on the location of canals, borewells, tanks, and other water systems at the grassroots level. While women are involved in the daily management of water for food production, especially on small farms, they have little say in water provisioning decisions.

Gandhiji's model toilet and his message for a clean and open defecation free India

As I get down from the auto that I hired for the day to take me from my hotel in Wardha to Mahatma Gandhi's ashram where he spent the last days of his life, I wasn't quite prepared for what lay ahead of me and the feelings that would hit me from then on. I had always been in awe of the man who freed India from the British Raj on the principle of non-violence, and in a dream I had when I was twenty, I had met this man in a railway station! I had run across hundreds of people, pushing forth across strange unrelenting shoulders but I had reached this man, somehow!

The venue on the first day at Wardha and the rains

October 3 – Making our way into the ground, we saw an all-night effort of the workers on site. The venue was prepped-up, workers were busy putting finishing touches – wiping the chairs of excess water, laying carpets on the ground, hanging fluorescent balloons in bunches on poles, near stalls and game pens.

The week at Wardha, Nagpur

September 30th - The skies poured out the day we were to leave for Nagpur. The morning shower felt like a blessing. Thankful, but sceptical of the weather, our biggest concern was whether the rains would follow us. In Nagpur, the moment we stepped out the heat hit us. Clear skies welcomed us and for that we were grateful.

Breaking the taboo of menstruation in rural India, a major deterrent in achieving menstrual hygiene

Priyanka, 13 and a chirpy adolescent girl studying in a government school in a village called ‘Rohini Gaun’ 25 kms from Wardha in Maharashtra blushes and says, "We don’t talk about it at all!". That is how deep seated the taboo around menstruation is in rural India and our society as a whole, where mothers do not discuss it with their daughters or even among themselves.
