Villagers design tap that supplies water without electricity in southeast India

Villagers from Sagadabasha in the Ganjam district of Odisha, southeast India, have designed a tap that supplies water from a far-away source without applying any electricity.

The intricate engineering is done by rural villagers who cannot afford a traditional water pump.

Instead, they raised collective funds to purchase a pipe, connecting the end to streaming water more than 2 kilometres away from their village.

One villager said: "Our extreme engineering skill is not only a slap to the administration but is also a lesson for many poor villagers."

According to the filmer, the village now has sufficient water for their daily use and they have also started growing vegetables from their supply.

The footage was captured on January 4.
