Parched Villages Supply Water to Thirsty Mumbai

Villages near Mumbai, the financial capital of India, are facing a water crisis despite supplying water to the city, Dawn newspaper reported yesterday.

According to the article, residents struggle with daily water collection due to drying wells and scorching heat.

This crisis is blamed on climate change and a lack of infrastructure connecting villages to the water network supplying Mumbai.

Experts say this situation reflects a wider problem in India, with unsustainable water usage and priority given to urban areas.

The government aims to provide piped water to all by 2030, but villagers face an uncertain future relying on rationed water supplies from tankers.
