While Delhiites are battling out an unprecedented water shortage this summer,the story of some Bangladeshis may be even worse. An exhibition titled Goalmari: Bangladeshs own island,comprising 30 works by award-winning Bangladeshi photographer Munem Wasif,showcases the everyday fight that the villagers of Goalmari in Bangladesh have to put up against contamination,scarcity and inaccessability of clean drinking water. The colourful snapshots acknowledge multi-level water crisis in the country and its fatal consequences.
The photos,though clicked in Bangladesh,portray a universal crisis. The show is a joint effort by United Nations Information
Centre for India and Bhutan,and water-conservation organisation Veolia Waters India. Besides displaying the photographs,there is also an effort to gather specialists to talk on water-related issues and suggest remedies.
Goalmari: Bangladeshs own
island will be on display at Alliance Francaise de Delhi till June 27. Entry is free. Contact: 43500200
