Thirst aid

Does Arundhati Roy, who survives on mineral water, really know what it is like walking miles for water? As a person who has spent quite some time in the Kutch region, I know the hardships the people there undergo. Women walk miles to fetch a few pots of water everyday. Vast areas of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh reel under drought every year. Wouldn’t irrigation coming to these lands mean better days for the people?

The Sardar Sarovar project will put an end to hardships not just of the Kutch region, but of large areas of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh as well. Let us not block the progress of this region. It has suffered for far too long.-PARUL MEHTA, Delhi
