Wankute is a dry, wind-blown village of the pathars of the Western Ghats that had very little access to water. Women trudged up and down the steep slopes to fetch whatever little water they could get. Wankute story of its people, partnerships and perseverance today has garnered it the JSW-TOI Earth Care Award. A story worth reading, indeed.
