Indian village girls climb into wells as deep as 40ft for buckets of worm-ridden water3m38s

Indian village girls climb into wells as deep as 40ft for buckets of worm-ridden water

Women and children of a village in Dindori in Madhya Pradesh, India, have a difficult routine to keep. Every morning they set out in the burning sun and walk miles to find a well with some water. It is a difficult quest as most wells in the area have dried up under the scorching Indian summer. The children in the group, invariably girls, climb down the well struggling to find a grip on the protruding stones of the wall. A small slip means plunging down to the bottom of the well, which in this region could be 40 feet or deeper. Accidents are frequent. Kajal Lodha, 28, says: “A girl in a neighbouring village broke her leg after falling down last month. ''If they are lucky they get clear water. If not, the water is milky white and sometimes comes with worms. They boil the water and filter it to make it potable.'' The plight of the Dindori villagers illustrates the tough struggle of millions to find potable water in the country. On June 15, Niti Aayog, a government thinktank, published a report stating that India was facing its worst-ever water crisis, with some 600 million people facing acute water shortage. The report drew data from 24 of India's 29 states and said the crisis was "only going to get worse" in the years ahead. “By 2030, the country’s water demand is projected to be twice the available supply,” the Niti Aayog report reads.

Monsoon rains devastate Rohingya refugees camps in Bangladesh

Heavy rains and landslides hit Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh as Monsoon season picks up. The footage, captured on June 12, shows a huge torrent of water inundating a camp in Cox's Bazar District. The filmer writes: ''We were doing food and some NFI relief distribution to 1000 families. ''We had to delay the distribution due to heavy rain and so while looking around the camp, we saw how much water had already filled up the lower part of the camp. ''This is going to get worse and already 200,000 Rohingya refugees are under threat from flooding due to monsoon rains.'' Thousands of hundreds of Rohingya have been forced to flee Myanmar for Bangladesh over the past 11 months due to a religious persecution that has been ongoing for decades.

Cyclist beats 127-year-old penny farthing record

An endurance cyclist has set a British record for the furthest distance travelled on a penny farthing in an hour. Mark Beaumont from Perthshire in Scotland covered 21.91 miles (35.2 kilometres) on the high wheeler at the Herne Hill Velodrome in London on Friday (June 15). Beaumont, a 35-year old Scot from Perthshire, is no stranger to setting records. Last year he cycled around the world in 78 days 14 hours and 40 minutes completing over 18,000 miles (29,000 km) en route. Beaumont was supported by eight other riders who would help him to try to beat the 127-year old world record. Their role was as pacemakers and to help him slipstream going down the straight. Beaumont’s bike was 1.42 metres in height and was specially made for the record attempt. While he broke the British record, Beaumont fell short of setting a new world record by around 274 metres, according to reports.
