Harnessing old wisdom in Bidar

How Bidar beat back the draught by Lalita Sridhar from The Hindu:
"The water that now flows in the Naubad karez (aqueduct) is the result of months of challenging research and meticulous restoration, not only of the aqueduct and its vents but also of bawdis and kalyanis (open wells and tanks that dot the landscape here), a part of Bidar’s highly evolved and networked indigenous water systems."
