The Wider Image: The Indian children who take a train to collect water
As their classmates set off to play after school each day, nine-year-old Sakshi Garud and her neighbour Siddharth Dhage, 10, are among a small group of children who take a 14 km (9 miles) return train journey from their village in India to fetch water. Their families are some of the poorest in the hamlet of Mukundwadi, in the western state of Maharashtra, a village that has suffered back-to-back droughts. India's monsoons have brought abundant rain and even floods in many parts of the country, but rainfall in the region around Mukundwadi has been 14 per cent below average this year and aquifers and borewells are dry. "I don't like to spend time bringing water, but I don't have a choice," Dhage said. REUTERS/Francis Mascarenhas SEARCH "MASCARENHAS DROUGHT" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
