NGOs quench thirst of Shahpur's parched Vihigao 22.6.2016 DNA: Top News
Whether there is drought or not next year, the residents of Vihigao in Shahpur will have enough water to meet their needs. Thanks to the three NGOs of Dombivli that built two dams with a capacity to store two crore litres of water. While a lot of housing societies and corporations are still talking about rain water harvesting, three NGOs of Dombivli have already done what they can for the residents of Vihigaon. The NGOs — Vivekanand Seva Mandal, Tilaknagar Sarvajanik Ganesh Mandal and Bharat Vikas Parishad — have built two dams in Vihigao village of Shahpur, relieving the villagers from the grasp of water tanker mafia, who provided water only for six months. The idea was a brainchild of Ketan Bondre of Vivekanand Seva Mandal, which has been doing lots of social work in Vihigao and other areas. "There were two dams in dilapidated conditions and without proper foundation in Vihigao. We rebuild them along with the foundation and they can store two crore liters of water," said Bondre.

Harvest that drop of rain 28.5.2016 DNA: India
With more than 25 per cent of India's population estimated to be tackling a crippling drought and an above normal monsoon expected this year, harvesting rainwater not just to store it for future use but also to recharge underground aquifers is critical. Revising its monsoon prediction, private weather forecaster Skymet has said rainfall this year will be 109 per cent of the long period average (LPA), up from the estimated 105 per cent last month. El Nino, the weather condition in the Pacific that impacts the South Asian monsoon, has ended, signalling hope for millions of people in India's 11 drought-hit states. But this will mean only momentary relief if the water is not conserved the proper way, say experts. In this scenario, rainwater harvesting, the age-old system of collection of rainwater for future use, has generated a lot of interest. But there are several misconceptions.
