When the hills go thirsty 24.6.2018 DNA: Top News
It is summertime and Shimla is a busy place. There are travellers to be checked-in, woollens to be sold at discounted 'summer' prices and tourists waiting to be shown around the mountain vistas. But, there is one thing whose mention is enough for everyone to pause and reflect on — water or the lack of it. There is an unconcealed unanimity across government offices, hotels and homes in the hill town, commercial establishments on the famous Mall Road and villages on the outskirts that the water crisis this summer is the worst that Shimla has ever faced. While the scarcity has always reared its head each summer, locals and experts admit that the acute crisis, which lasted over three weeks between May 20 and June 12, is unprecedented. "We did not have water for 15 days at a stretch. It was an ordeal for all of us in the neighbourhood. It was especially hard on all the women as taps ran dry even at the public toilets. We had to send our kids to relatives' homes in other cities," said Soma Jaiswal, 77, a ...

Look Beyond Rivers 5.5.2018 DNA: Top News
​​The mercury is climbing. These are the dog days of summer. Delhi is again facing acute water shortages — one of the biggest challenges it has been grappling with for decades. The worst-hit areas have been its pockets in the Southwest (rocky terrain), North floodplains (parched) and Northwest.  In such times, the Yamuna is always in focus. And it’s natural to some extent, because the river, despite being nothing better than a sewage canal at some places, meets about 70 per cent of Delhi’s water needs. And this is where the main problem has always been.   For, till about a century ago, the city did not depend directly on the Yamuna to meet its water needs. It was more for recreation, rituals, cargo transportation, and a source of livelihood for farmers, fishers, mallahs, washermen, pujaris and swimmers​/divers​.  Historian-filmmaker Sohail Hashmi says the river water was probably not potable in Delhi even before it began to be choked with sewage and industrial waste.  “It had mica seams embedded in the ...
