What will happen if there is no water?

What will happen when there is no water? The acute scarcity of water in Jharkhand has brought its citizens face to face with this apocalyptic situation. As the state’s water sources dry up, residents of many villages are being forced to use contaminated water. 

Basanti Hunni takes viewers to Urikel, a village in Ranchi district of Jharkhand where residents are worried about their survival as all the village hand pumps and water bodies have dried up. 

As you sip water from that glass, think how the children of Urikel are crying for each drop of water. Take action to help the village by calling Chandrashekhar on +91-94305121919 at the Public Health and Engineering Department in Khunti, Jharkhand
