It is common knowledge that water scarcity is a widespread problem in rural India. People have to walk miles to the water source, fill their containers and walk all the way back to their homes – miles away.
Men go to work. How can they walk all the way to the well and collect water? Who will earn a living then?
The solution to this problem – more wives.
More wives = More people for collecting water.
This video by ActionAid India explains perfectly why men marry twice and even thrice in these villages.
This needs to change because it is wrong. And even more so, because it is a widespread problem. Let us fight against this problem, together.
