Village vignettes - drying tanks
Malleshwaram cheruvu, the main tank of our panchayat. The entire area here is the tank which gets filled with water from the surrounding catchment. It used to fill every year and overflow. For 10 years we have see only a dry tank due to failing rains, and an exhasuted groundwater table.
The tank overflowed during the unprecendted rains this years after nearly a decade - and now, a few months later, there is only a little water in the pits.
