The ‘itch’-pond by Sudhir Kumar
The people of Haripur village used to bathe their cattle in the same pond where they bathed themselves. Soon they develop rashes on their skin because of the dirty water.
They talk to the village head about the problem as there was no other pond there. The village head gets the permission to create a new pond and a handpump in the village. They realise it is always good to engage children in the meetings of village committee.
