Kamandalagundi, a remote village in central Karnataka is dry and thirsty. On an average, if the monsoon is good, the area receives around 350 mm rainfall in one year. This year the farmers say, they are prepared. The hope is that the monsoon is bountiful, but if not then they say they can sustain themselves and save their crops which mean gold to them. In a mission to recharge defunct borewells, the farmers dig a pit around the bore well first. Boulders are then filled into the pit. A huge perforated pipe is fit into the bore well.
