    Not a drop to drink!

    Unless India embarks on a massive plan for the supply of drinking water to all its villages, towns and cities and executes it in the next two to three decades it will remain a Third World country for the rest of the world. If India can increase its irrigated area ten-fold from one crore hectares in 1947 to ten crore hectares in 2000, it can also create nationwide water supply schemes in a much shorter period because these schemes are not as complex as the irrigation schemes.
