musings of a Nepali girl

Happy Women’s Day!

Today is city water day. The city water (government provided water) comes to the public taps three times a week. A public tap serves around 10 houses or more.

On this very special day, many women in our neighborhood were busy at the collection points... this chore is mostly carried out by girls and women.

Some people these days don’t bother queuing for the water. They pay for a water tanker and that sustains them for a month at least. But these people can afford it.

There are many others who rely on the city water though.
