Jal. Jangal. Zameen. Jan. Janwar.
Naduwali River, Sariska's Buffer Zone
Once, a dry and parched area, Nanduwali village was struck by migration. A few who stayed back decided to change the situation. Their only chance lay in revival the lost Nandu river.
So they turned to local wisdom. The conservation of ‘Jal. Jangal. Zameen. Jan. Janwar’ (water, forest, land, people and animals). By ensuring base flow, construction of various small recharge and storage structures, conservation of forest area and participation of local people – a dead river today ensures a higher water level in the wells.
