How 300 women dug 190 wells to save their panchayat from drought in Kerala



Most of the women have stories of overcoming their inhibitions to narrate to the world.

Lakshmikutty (39), a resident of Pookkottukavu panchayat in Kerala's Palakkad district, has been working under the central government's MNREGA scheme since the past six years. Lakshmi used to be wary of heights, but not anymore.

Lakshmi, along with 299 other women have defied their inhibitions and have dug as many as 300 wells in their panchayat over a period of six months. Now, she climbs down the wells with practiced ease--tying two ladders together, suspending them inside the wells and then climbing down to dig the well deeper, until she finds water.
