For 28 years, A R Shivakumar and his family have lived in a house they built in Vijayanagara in Bengaluru. And in all these years, they have met all their water needs completely with rainwater. When Shivakumar studied rainfall data from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) he realised Bengaluru received enough rain to make this very feasible. Today, all the water needs of his household are met from the rainfall that the city of Bengaluru receives annually. From cooking to washing to flushing, and for the beautiful garden that surrounds the house, the family is showing what is possible with a little bit of thought and planning.
