My engagement project proposes to report about my findings on water practices during floods and in relation to water contamination. To this end, I will conduct a yatra, a collective hike, in my fieldwork area, visiting approximately 50 villages in 30 days. In this yatra, I plan to involve the personnel of the NGOs with whom I have been working since 2007. In the remaining 15 days of my project, I intend to present my work in interested institutions across the country.
