    Field visit at Khetusar Village, Baap - Day 3 (21.11.12)

    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    Dean and I departed after morning breakfast from Kalron centre at 8:30 A.M, reached Baap centre at 9:30 A.M. One of our field staff from Baap accompanied us to guide us for Khetusar village (one of our project village). We reached Khetusar village at 11:30 A.M. There we visited again percolated Beries in the Naadi (pond). The Naadi was full with water and had about 80-90 percolated water filled Beries in the pond bed. The Naadi was an immense example of water above the ground as well as below the ground. There we met Manohar Singh (a village representative) and he informed us that the Beries are 300 yrs old. We were surprised to see that none of the Beries had durable superstructure. Most of them were just dug up and kept open without any covering of physical structure. The Naadi had a very large catchment area of about 80-90 hectares all around which was of course the reason for the Naadi to have water in it with Beries full of water. The Naadi had steps and wall created from one side to have easier access to water. We had discussions with few other community people and shared our project plan and objectives of renovating the Beri with lime. They were happy to adopt the traditional technology and demanded for renovating every Beri in the pond. Photographs were taken of the water structure. We returned back to Baap centre and had our lunch.
