This farmer from Mandya invested his fortune to change villagers' fortunes 3.9.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The region may have been hit by water shortage in the last few years. But ponds and canals in 10 villages, situated at the foot of Kundani Hill (10 km from Malavalli town in the district), brim with water throughout the year. This is thanks to the efforts of a 78-year-old farmer, who has taken upon himself the task of protecting the natural resources here. For the past 40 years, Kamegowda, a resident of Dasanadoddi, has been relentlessly working towards saving water, trees and the environment. He has been digging canals, building bunds and roads atop the hill. Dasanadoddi, Pandithahalli, Hosadoddi, Thiruvalli, Panathahalli and other villages at the foot of the hill have benefited by his efforts. Kamegowda, who never attended school, has constructed check dams atop the hill to save water that flows down the slopes. He has constructed five bunds from the hill up to Dasanadoddi village. If one check dam gets filled, water flows down to the others. Hence, the livestock in the villages get water even during ...
