This is a documentary on water crisis in India and an insight into the ancient methods of water preservations, which were very effective. We all know that water exists in three forms – liquid water, ice and vapour. India may be one of few countries in the world where water exists in these three different forms in three different states – a monsoon driven Kerala, a snow caped Himalayan Ladakh and the great desert of Rajasthan. Yet the one place that lacks water has the most efficient methods of conservation than the ones with plenty. The lead characters of this documentary are three different people living in these three different zones, which differ in almost every way yet are united by two enigmas – India and water crisis.
Ladakh is the high altitude cold desert of India. Sansar Chand, a preacher makes his journey through the challenging terrains of Ladakh. There is plenty of water in the form of ice, yet he has no option to get some water to drink.
Then we come to Kerala, the coastal area with plenty of rainfall. Geetika captures the beauty of rains and shows us how water is becoming useless in a county struck by drought.
