-‘Drought’ not just about deficient rainfall, it’s tough choice between life and death


 
Marathwada
 THE MOST DROUGHT PRONE AREA IN MAHARASHTRA is the region comprising the eight districts in maharashtra,india



 WHY MARATHWADA IS FACING DROUGHT?
VIKAS KRUTTI SANSHODAN KENDRA [VKSK] NGO  SURVEY OF MARATHWADA -


Marathwada is facing one of the severe droughts, with just 5.68 per cent live storage left in 964 dams and groundwater levels already depleting to the extent that borewells dug up to even 300-500 ft are not getting a drop of water. But drought is not just about deficient rainfall, dry dams, tankers and crop failure. Girls walked miles in the scorching heat in Nanded and latur to fetch drinking water for their families. As they spotted some grimy water at the bottom of a well they rushed. Many women and girls lost there balance and fell to death while fetching water. Many farmers have set their orchards on fire in frustration and the shadow of death looms large here.
                                     

SUICIDE CAUSE ?
 Already, 4,700 farmers have committed suicide in the last five years in Marathwada, including 947 last year. In Beed district, hundreds of villages stand deserted as people have migrated to western Maharashtra in search of a livelihood, our VKSK staff was surveying in recent 2019 summer.

Drought means ruined childhood for thousands of girls  who spend their summer vacation in search of water. It means backbreaking strife for women who wander in search of water. Drought means a tough choice between life and death for the family. So our vksk officials have started the awareness camps in many villages
 
 DROUGHT CRISIS?
 Frequent droughts and crop failure have not only disrupted the economy of one of the backward regions in the State, but also inflicted many a human tragedy on local inhanbitants.
 
VKSK HAVE IDENTIFIED THE PEOPLES AFFECTED IN MARATHWADA,MAHARASHTRA 


RECENT CASE -
women died because of standing more then 4 to 8 hours in line for water everydays and takes painkiller for the body pain so it’s the worst case for the womens & girls in Marathwada


Water Crisis
The majority of Marathwada districts, with a population of 1.87 crore, fall in the Godavari basin, but barring Godavari no other major river flows through the region. Small rivers such as Purna, Sindhphana, Bindusara and Shivna turn dry as summer approaches.
“Look at this. You think it is a desert, it is not. It is Sindphana, our river,” Drought is frequent in Marathwada, but this year the crisis has deepened. Groundwater level in 1,200 villages in the region depleted by 2-3 metre , while 1,948 villages saw depletion by 1-2 metre . But this has not stopped people from digging borewells in search of water. Almost all borewells in the region have gone dry and people are looking for new ones.
 
  




 Type equation here.As of now, 2,092 villages and hamlets are completely dependent on 2,063 water tankers plying in the region. “  the quality of tanker water also bad,”  Government tanker comes once in a while and release water in plastic cans kept by the villagers. “The water is muddy and salty. Even the cattle is not drinking this water,” . Other villagers rush with complaints. Those who can buy drinking water are buying it, others are drinking this  bad water.

Crop Failure
At the beginning of kharif season, there was just 25 per cent water stock in major dams in the region, which further got depleted 18 per cent in December, 2018. With dry dams and depleted water table, Marathwada will not have any source of drinking or non-drinking water.
The kharif crop was withered by the drought and hence many farmers did not sow winter crops. All major crops, including maize, soya, cotton, mosambi, pulses, groundnuts suffered, due to poor rainfall and not surprisingly the Latur Agriculture Farmers say that not a single drop of water was available for plantation at crucial times

No Fodder
The VKSK has promoted fodder camps in many region of marathwada which have sheltered about 3 lakh livestock. “



Quest for Work
Every year an estimated 15 lakh small and marginal farmers leave Marathwada after sowing to work as cane cutters in the sugar belt of western Maharashtra. “This year, there is more migration. Many who had gone for cane-cutting have not come back as they are looking for some work.  many more who have migrated in search of jobs. Migration has gone up by at least 40-50 per cent, according to VKSK officials.

NO EMPLOYMENT FOR YOUTH


 Though maharashtra is one of the better off states in the country, but there are many pockets in different parts of the state, having highly deplorable socio-economic conditions. Wide disparities can be seen different strata of the society. A large segment of population is still struggling for survival and they are not finding opportunities in the societal dynamics for betterment of their quality of life. The district of Latur is one of them, where situation is tragic, to recurrent natural disasters.

And specially we want to work in latur as it’s the most affected as there are very less trees as per the official maharahstra government data and a famous drought of 2016 was the worst case in the history as water stored train came from western mahastrashtra.

THE DISTRICT OF LATUR

Latur district lies to the south-East of Maharashtra on the border of Maharashtra and Karnataka. Latur, the headquarters of the district, is an ancient town. The district has 7 Tehsils, 7 Towns and 914 Villages.

             CHAOS OF WATER COLLECTION LATUR

VISION FOR THE AREA

The organization has visu¬alized that India is primarily a rural based society and agriculture is still the only sustainable path of development. It has also realized that India can be made stronger and development is sustained. Revamping the rural economy is the only way to make the rural society self-sufficient, the rural communities integrated and bring back the original glory and prosperity. The organization also considers self- employment a viable and feasible alternative approach of development to the so-called industrialised development . which displaces the people, creates environment damages and mushrooms Unser developed cities with slums. the eventual consequences of which are poor health status, environmental hazards, social dislocation, acute food shortage and loss of resource control, involuntary settlements and social problems.
