                                              Water Crisis in Dharavi

          July 23 : Dharavi has been facing an acute shortage of water for almost three months now . In some areas water is available only for an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening and in some areas no water is available at all . People have to fetch water from wells or have to depend on water tankers . Water tanker operators are having a field day and charging exorbitant rates . It is not an uncommon sites to see people lining up in queues near public water taps  or near wells with buckets in their hands . The government appears to be blissfully unaware of the situation and has taken no positive measures to alleviate the misery of the people . When questioned , the authorities try to play down the crisis .
