While putting dying rivers such as the Shipra and Sabarmati on life support by transporting water at enormous cost from other river basins is measure that's earning populist praise, it raises serious questions on the transparent allocation of this increasingly scarce resource.

Ambhora is a village that has been abandoned, left to the ghosts. All the people are gone. The houses are breaking and nature is reclaiming the habitation. The village lies on the banks of the Wainganga and in more habitable times, in the not too distant past, boys played cricket and held wrestling matches on the sandy banks.
