This film documents inland rainfed fish farmers’ experiences in practicing scientific fishery through the support of Vikas Sahyog Kendra, WASSAN and PACS in the Palamau and Latehar districts of Jharkhand. People of these districts talk about the issues of User Rights of Common Water Bodies being in favor of private contractors than local citizens.
They also talk about their experiments with small scale farm fishery which is becoming increasingly popular. The film ends with taking stock of what all remains to be done to boost fishery as a viable livelihood option, while also acknowledging and celebrating people’s participation in this effort.
In earlier days, millets were eaten all day long but the eating patterns changed to rice and wheat. This change led to health problems like obesity and diabetes and to food shortages in relation to climate change. The video narrates how HIVOS - WASSAN programme has supported the reintroduction of millets by governments and NGOs and led to local food security.
