Mridula Ramesh has warned that the water crisis in India may deepen further. This book throws light on the factors that have led India to this crisis. In this book with a history of 5000 years, topics like extreme weather events and farmers' protests in the country today, geopolitics related to water, clean technology have also been mentioned.


The book published by 'Hatchet India' states, "The way crops are grown in India has changed in the last 150 years. From a predominantly millet growing country in the 19th century, we have now become rice and wheat-producing country.”


The book states, “This transformation requires huge spending on dams and canals, which naturally makes urban water supplies expensive.


Given India's growing population, urbanization and wealth, almost half of India's total water demand will not be met by 2030." Ramesh has said that a hydrographic survey should be started with regard to water supply, rainwater harvesting capacity, wastage of water, treated and reused water.
