A new documentary film, tracing DelhiΓΓé¼Γäós water from source to tap to sewer. . . and right back to tap.
The Groundwater Up Project explores ΓΓé¼┼ôDelhiΓΓé¼Γäós water crisisΓΓé¼┬¥ and looks at the sources of DelhiΓΓé¼Γäós water and its consumption. If you enjoy drinking, swimming, bathing, flushing the toilet, or washing your clothes, this is the film for you.
People often ask if we are going to tell them how to solve DelhiΓΓé¼Γäós water crisis through this film. We usually decide that theyΓΓé¼Γäóre being slightly- if not completely- sarcastic, but choose to respond with: no, this film is a learning process that we will try to share with you in a way that isnΓΓé¼Γäót boring.
While we may not know or tell you what ΓΓé¼┼ôthe solutionsΓΓé¼┬¥ to DelhiΓΓé¼Γäós water crisis are, we will tell you why dams and large scale sewage treatment plants arenΓΓé¼Γäót working, and introduce you to people who are pursuing other solutions ΓΓé¼ΓÇ£ like rainwater harvesting, restoring old water bodies, and cleaning up rivers.
Maybe we donΓΓé¼Γäót need to wait for some ΓΓé¼┼ôexpertsΓΓé¼┬¥ to give us one big SOLUTION.
Maybe Delhiites already have the many little solutions that, if spread, can cure DelhiΓΓé¼Γäós thirst.
