Chennai has a long history of water shortage. Despite occasional heavy rains and flooding, no permanent solution has been implemented to provide adequate supply for the city’s residents.
A Chettinad Mess on Mookker Nallamuthu Street has to ferry pots of water to the first floor from a street pump.
A nearby shop advertises ‘Tasty Palar water available here’. Wonder where they get their supply from. Many on the banks of Palar river themselves do not get an adequate supply.
