Ep. 534: Safe Water for Big Cities
As we record this episode, residents in East Delhi are facing an acute water shortage. The shortages come soon after the Delhi Government went to the Supreme Court against the state of Haryana, highlighting the increasingly polluted and depleted water in the Yamuna - a key source of water for India's capital. Rachit Seth talks to Sarthak Pradhan about some potential solutions that could widen access to "safely managed water" in Delhi amid these trying circumstances.
