Villagers are deepening a naadi or village pond. It is used for storing water from the adjoining natural catchment area during the rainy season. The water availability can range from a few months to a year and is generally used to provide water for the community livestock. This is only one of the many ways people in Rajasthan have learned to capture and store water and this explains why the Thar Desert has for many generations been the world's most populated desert. These techniques could easily be applied in other arid regions around the globe.
