INSATIABLE THIRST

Anoushka Mukherjee

Insatiable Thirst portrays the irony of never-ending demand and exploitation of water hidden under bubbles of development and infrastructure. The focus is on studying the progress of the Narmada Main Canal over the course of years, looking particularly at the initial planning of 1999, followed by 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2020. 

Over time, multiple branch canals and districts have joined the main canal link promising surplus water supply, yet about 8000 km of the canal is still under construction with plights of thirst increasing.
