Farmers of Mathanga Tanda in Adilabad district depended on water from one lake for growing crops. When the lake dried up during summer or when there were no rains, crops failed. Facing these miserable conditions year after year, the farmers left to other villages for work. However, they decided to restore the lake and store rain, by desilting and increasing its depth. With this the lake started brimming even during the hot season, giving reason for the farmers to smile.
