Jaipur water fest
"I must congratulate CSE for its campaign on water conservation. It was most
enlightening to have you in Jaipur at the Heritage Week. Me and my wife Megha are both
architects and are practicing in Jaipur since five years now. Both of us had gone to
Sujangarh (a small town in western Rajasthan near Bikaner) to study the water harvesting
tanks there and for some good birding in the region. Sujangarh is an amazing town which
has ground water at a level of some 40 feet or so. The water is extremely salty and not
potable at all. They have been surviving in this situation since 300 years. Locally called
as "kundi", we were able to find some amazing structures. We found a kund which
was 250 years old and still functioning. There were some great rural structures also which
I had a chance to photograph in detail. I would be happy to make a good presentation with
photographs and illustrations."
