Introduction

1. The Indian Situation

2. The Evolution of Water Control in India

Landscape architecture, an age-old concept that blends science and art to create outdoor designs that incorporate existing natural landscapes, is regaining popularity in India.

Bright-eyed in the morning, I walk down the pavement for some fresh air. As I squish over greasy paper bags and forsaken Coke bottles, the stale smell of plastic bags strewn all over hits me. Stamping on them, I charge onto the already cramped road, jostle for space with other people, dodge honking cars, and reach the park breathless, dishevelled and foul. All this, for some fresh air!

Over 3000 water bodies which once existed in Meerut district alone are now in a pitiable state. Will returning to a community-based water management system help revive these?

Traditional water bodies such as bawdis and talabs have long since been an integral part of rural life in India providing water, fish and sometimes even just a venue for people to chit chat. The flat plains in Western Uttar Pradesh, where the Ganga and Yamuna rivers meet, is no exception. Once home to many such water bodies, this area where the epic Mahabharata was set, has slowly given way to rapid urbanization.
