While for many of us living in big cities, the big concern is making sure we drink that prescribed eight glasses of water a day but for many of our country even one is a luxury. As Maharashtra faces its worst drought in 47 years, NDTV travels to the drought-hit areas to show the struggles faced by people living there.
