Maharashtra is facing one of its worst droughts for the fourth time in five years. A village in Aurangabad, some 400 km from state capital Mumbai, is grappling with severe water crisis after the canals here ran dry recently. The irony is the Jadgaon village was meant to be drought-free by the end of this year as a part of state government's water conservation scheme - Jalyukt Shivar Abhiyan. Locals say the canals, dug as a part of the scheme in the village, were not "dug wisely".
