Rajesh from Aurore is coming this Monday. Only Lingan is irrigating his field for beans. No one else is doing cultivation.Now people are asking to convert the poly line tank for a permanent cement structure so it will be use full in the future. They will money contribute for cement. Sand & stones can be picked up from here. Laxmi (Rani's daughter) has come forward to help in the nursery, doing weeding & watering. Requesting us to assign people to operate the solar pump because too many hands operating now which is not good.Only few in the village were present, rest gone to Gudalur hospital to see Jollan of Boothanatham who has consumed poison

Only fFew people had attended the meeting. They had argued that we have done nothing to them, so why should Wecontribute towards the water users's fund. We had briefed them that since there is no cooperation from the peoples side we could not come forward for the implementation. The head man Masanan refused to be there for the full meeting & walked off half way through. He has told to get the permission from the Panchayat president & then only implement things. This shows slight change from his attitude due other NGO's interference. After briefing about all the other WUGs they finally agreed to mend the leakages from the Mavnalla pipeline & agreed to start paying the contribution to the WUG fund after comparing with savings from the other groups. So spare parts have been bought & given to the fitter for mending the leakages.
