India's Rural Crisis - 26 "At Bahrutal in Bundelkhand, only a handful of people remained. It was a ghost village devoid of most of its residents." Thousands, if not more, were migrating, many to India’s already overcrowded cities, leaving behind ghost villages and a landscape of barren fields, dead trees, parched rivers and lonely cattle.Those who remained, lived perilously, the old and the very young alike walking miles in searing temperatures to hunt for water.

India is witnessing an unprecedented farmland crisis over the last few years. And as Inequality touches new heights in India, an #Oxfamreport published recently found "73 percent of the wealth generated last year went to the richest one percent, while 67 crore Indians who comprise the poorest half of the population saw one percent increase in their wealth." Two years ago, I started a project which first looked at a huge swathe of a region in central India called "Bundelkhand" an area of over 27,000 square miles across the states Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. It is one of India’s poorest areas, populated mostly by poverty-stricken farmers living in rudimentary villages. That year an intense drought affected a staggering 330 million people nationwide.

India's Rural Crisis - 25 "On the outskirts of Dikwaha, a small village in Uttar Pradesh's part of the Bundelkhand, Dayaram digs out dirt from the floor of a small pond. The pond normally provides water to his village of 1,200 people but now it’s dry, cracked and baking in the sun. At a small pool of murky, black water that lingers in the middle of the former pond, villagers fish with their bare hands looking for last of the survivors." As I traveled across this rocky land, village after village stood mostly empty and forlorn. Dead trees and cattle carcasses dotted the rocky terrain. Lakes and rivers were empty of water. Few crops can survive the intense heat and dryness; Bundelkhand has been called “the worst place in India to be a farmer.” India is witnessing an unprecedented farmland crisis over the last few years.

India's Rural Crisis - 24 "Piles of livestock carcasses were a common sight across the parched landscape of Bundelkhand." The dryness and heat had wreaked havoc on the livestock. Less than two hours away from Garroli by car in a district called Mahoba in the Bundelkhand region, shepherds often free their cattle to roam during periods of drought. The cattle will forage for food and return after the driest period has ended. But the prolonged drought and scarcity of water meant that many perished that year in the unforgiving heat.

India's Rural Crisis - 23 "75-year-old Saraswati Raekwad and her 10-year-old granddaughter Bharti, tend to small vegetable gardens they had planted in the few remaining patches of moist earth at the Madan Sagar lake that once stretched across 75 acres and served the local population in better days. But now, it was totally dry." Now, fishermen squatted in the lakebed under shards of tarpaulin and cloth strung together to tend to small vegetable gardens they had planted in the few remaining patches of moist earth.
As the agrarian economy collapses in India, millions have migrated from regions like Bundelkhand to distant cities in search of work. Fleeing famine-like conditions and drought, they pack into train compartments and standing-room-only buses that crawl out of the dust toward the promise, however faint, of regular work somewhere else.

India's Rural Crisis - 21 "A truck carries away the excavated dirt from the bed of the Madan Sagar lake in Mahoba, Bundelkhand, where it once stretched across 75 acres and served the local population in better days. But now, it was totally dry; large digging machines are at work 24 hours a day, clearing the lakebed. The silt deposited there must be removed before the rains came.
“It acts like polyethylene, preventing any water from seeping through,” explained Rajendra Nigam, who worked for a small nonprofit in drought-hit areas near here. Hundreds of dump trucks moved in and out of the lakebed, leaving behind a trail of thick, swirling dust."
