The business of water

We live in a place where the Government water supply to homes is still on going. So we rely on rain water. We harvest rain water big time. However, we might not have enough to last till the next rain which is months away. Hence we buy water from private supplier when the price is still cheap. 1200 rupees (22 USD) for a truck load which is 4000 litres. We have bought two truck loads.

At this time of the year in town, such trucks loaded with syntax barrels is a very common sight.

From the road, they pumped it up to our tank.

Life is harder for the less affordable in the dry season. Like the woman above fetching water from a a series of barrels at Sialsuk.

Even more harder, many have to fetch water this way.
