Joydevpur Tapu, West Bengal

‘I am Sabitri Barman, wife of Rabindra Barman. I live at Rydak river lake called Joydevpur Tapu. This village is sick and underdeveloped. Maximum people are illiterate.They are all daily labour – they lead their family by labouring. For the time being, most of the people of Joydevpur Tapu working in different states as a daily labour. Now we are very happy for this new water source. It means less time is spent in water collection and our health improves.’
