‘Open well and its impact on groundwater‘
Raghavan being a scientist had studied 200-year-old survey records of 2,000 villages in Tamil Nadu. The survey showed how the villagers saved water in temple tanks, ponds, and paddy fields. He realized, it was time for the city people to adopt these measures!
Rain Centre is a place that teaches people the correct method of saving fresh water and was started by Raghavan.
Now there is no flooding, and rainwater gets stored underground!
