A brilliant solution to Tamil nadu's water woes......float thermocol sheets on lakes to prevent evaporation.
Another  case of the disdain people in power have for real experts.

There is a school dropout who was a weaver's son. His mother had to work 8 -10 hours a day on winding yarn in intricate patterns for weaving sarees. She earned just a couple of rupees. Her arms used to ache and she was constantly in pain. The  boy decided to ease his mother's pain and after repeated trials, invented a mechanical device for this process. There are a few examples of passion driven uneducated people acheiving great things.

But our minister is not one of those. The people in power are definitely not driven by passion to help other people, they are not experts and often not even intelligent enough to grasp what the actual problem is. So my appeal to them is  please, please consult real experts to solve problems; not just one, but a couple of them. Ask the people on ground what the problem is and ask how they think it can be solved.
