Traditional Water Harvesting – Rajasthan, India.

Anupam Mishra: The ancient ingenuity of water harvesting 

Anupam Mishra is an Indian water conservationist and a Gandhian. The ted talk focuses on traditional water harvesting methods used in the desert state of Rajasthan.

As a Gandhian, Mishra has placed emphasis on the use of local knowledge to provide solution to local water problems. The talk is indicative of my conviction in the revival of traditional processes, which are self-sustaining and circumvent the need for complex externalized solution to a localized problem.
