Village vignettes - Kavya and her water pot

Kavya - as she carries this pot far too heavy for her, my heart trembles. I remember the other village women whose health has got destroyed after overwork from a young age on an undernourished frame.

7 pots of water a day for a family is the quota in this drought. The cows which need at least 3 pots of water a day. If there are two cows, a family of five has a pot of water a day. One can cook OR bathe OR wash clothes ...

Also, no grass for the cows to graze, and no agricultural employment at all.
