In the drought-hit Beed district of Maharashtra, cases of water-related diseases have gone up in the last couple of months. Amid water shortage, people here say they are forced to drink contaminated water. Locals in Brahmagaon, one of the villages in the district, have only few wells in the area, which also have contaminated water. One of the wells in this village has almost run dry and the remaining water gets mixed with mud. Manupriya, a 14-year-old, who regularly fetches water from the well admits she drinks it even though it makes her sick.
