Even after six decades of independence the significance of Indian agriculture is overburdened with more people more area less economies which is solidly depending on vagaries of monsoon. Government's rural development has not made the desired impact on the lives of people. However the degraded moonscape of Jhabua district became the setting for a major watershed development programme. This grew into other programmes of rural development. The poorest of the poor are reaping the benefits today. The objective is to trap every drop of rain people have to demand nullahs build tanks and watersheds. To conserve soil people had to plant fruit bearing trees. Soon there was grass for cattle and crops of different kinds. Anna Hazare and Ralegan Siddhi's people got used to producing surplus water and began to build brick houses for themselves. The primary aim is to make water every body's responsibility and to ensure that water management is not a centralised issue that the state has to deal with. All water comes from rain. Rain is decentralised. So is the demand for water. Why can't we decentralise scientific suppl. Bookseller Inventory # 58587
