As it is,Jharkhand has hugely suffered from water shortage problem for long.The problem was grave to the extent that some media houses and newspaper had highlighted it as a “water crisis” and “water emergency” too. There were reports of student being unable to attend the schools, a villager committing suicide for not getting water till 700 ft. that was alarmingly scary, as the underground water level is learnt to have had depleted to that lower level.Many water bodies had turned dirty and filthy.
All that was a cause of concern for everyone in the state and the state administration. But a group of people led by Additional Chief Secretary Santosh Kumar Satapathy,instead of talking and discussing the problem in drawing rooms and coffee centres,took a decisive action by inviting TataGyan Humanity Foundation.
