"The government spends millions of rupees to improve irrigation facilities but our village has not received even a single penny. This is a temporary irrigation canal that we are digging to water our fields. Whenever there is a flood, the temporary dam that we make to divert the river water into the canal breaks and we have to come down and build it again.
We have to do this to earn a living."
