WATER WOMEN 10000 MILES


It is a story of one woman and a little girl who live in the most arid part of Rajasthan state where the annual rainfall varies from 10 to 40cm. It is quite often erratic, so much so that the entire rainfall of the year may fall on a single day and the rest of the year may be dry.

In India, water is solely a woman's problem. From the time she is able to walk, she learns that it is her job to find and get water for the entire household. In her lifetime, she would have walked more than 10 000 miles to fetch water.

Komal joins a motley group of women to travel through the vast desert for an earthen pitcher of water. So does the little 9 year old Lajjo who can barely carry the pot on her head. Several dangers await them on their journey.
