Documentary : Water Business is Good Business

Runtime: 28 mins

Dierctor: Sanjay Barnela, Vasant Saberwal

 

Synopsis:

India's water bottling industry today stands on an annual worth of about 1,800 crore rupees (1 crore = 10 million). If Lutyen's Delhi receives 400 litres per person per day, the slums of Najafgarh receive less than 30 litres per person per day.

 

This crisis is rooted not so much in the overall availability of water, as in the patterns of consumption and failure to regulate consumption through appropriate and equitable tariff structures. The urban mindset seeks to source water from the rural countryside, rather than focusing on its conservation.

 

This film travels from Delhi to Indore, Bombay to Chennai, exploring the politics and economics of urban water supplies. We come across the same solution - the construction of mega-projects to bring water from distant rivers to our various cities. Even as we source water from distant locations, with all the attendant problems of displacing rural people from their homes and livelihoods, upwardly mobile urban populations will simply ensure a continually growing need for more water.


TED Talk: The ancient ingenuity of water harvesting, Anupam Mishra
Runtime: 17.07 mins

With wisdom and wit, Anupam Mishra talks about the amazing feats of engineering built centuries ago by the people of India's Golden Desert to harvest water. These ancient aqueducts and stepwells are still used today — and are often superior to modern water megaprojects.

Jagriti

Jagriti is a Performance Arts space dedicated to Theatre, Music, Dance and Comedy. Founded in 2011 by Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, the space has hosted several productions from India and around the world. A 200-seat theatre, built around a full-thrust stage, it is fully equipped to cater to both artistes and audience. The main stage is designed for intimate performances, with adjoining spaces for informal lectures and gatherings, and an attached restaurant- 'The Fat Chef'. Jagriti is owned and operated by the not-for-profit ART Foundation, a registered charitable trust.

The Rooftop - above the main auditorium is an open-to-sky space with a staging area that can accommodate about 50 people. A raised and walled off platform can work as a perfect area for puppet theatre. The Rooftop has a restroom and a pantry. 

The Terrace - alongside the auditorium, the Terrace can accommodate about 20 people as an informal gathering area.

Lumbini - extending out from the foyer, Lumbini has a stage and an open-to-sky terraced space for about 80 people.
