Himalayan Jal Sanskriti Calendar 2008 :
Traditional Water Harvesting Structures of Uttarakhand

  Calendar 2008 cover   Calendar 2008 back  
PSI’s 2008 calendar celebrates traditional  water harvesting structures in Uttarakhand.  This beautifully designed planner cum calendar showcases some of the recently restored and renovated water harvesting structures shot by Devraj Agrawal, a Dehra Doon based photographer. The calendar is designed by Ms. Shalini Sinha with the support Dinesh Sharma, Salil Das, Ravi Chopra , Manikant Shah and Deep Chand Bisht.
“People’s Science Institute’s Jal Sanskriti programme has generated tremendous interest among common people in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh for reviving traditional water harvesting structures,” says the introduction in the calendar. The Jal Sanskriti Fellowships initiated by PSI with the support of India Friends Association (California, USA) helped restore 50 water harvesting structures. Taking a lead from this local communities have also begun to renovate water structures on their own initiative.
This year PSI aims to expand its programme  through the Jal Sanskriti Fellowships to renovate and repair water harvesting structures and increase the circulation of the Jal Sanskriti Newsletter. In addition to this we will increase our efforts to popularize and undertake roof rain water harvesting.  PSI gratefully acknowledges the support received from Dr. K.S. Chawla of CTC Geotechnical Pvt. Ltd.(New Delhi) and Shrikumar Poddar of  the International Service Society (Michigan, USA).
These calendars are available for sale and are competitively priced at Rs. 100 per calendar plus postage. Special rates are offered for bulk orders.
