Yamuna River

The Yamuna – uncertain river

The water that does reach the city serves barely serves its water needs. However the water available to each citizen is not equal, as it follows the city’s political structures. Hence the prime areas where the seat of the national government is located are provided ten times water per person as compared to what those who live on the city’s less fortunate areas are supplied. It is not uncommon to witness street squabbles over water. Of course, only those who have water can create sewage. Not only is the river water used to serve the elite, but also consequently it carries their sewage too!
