Women from 32 households struggling to extract drinking water from 288 years old traditional dug well located in Tun Chuka (communal courtyard with the dug well), located in Lalitpur District of Nepal in shivering cold of Kathmandu Valley in a dark morning while most were sleeping. Since mid January communities are suffering from decreased ground water level in urban areas where many people are living in little space. Women from each household have to wait for an hour to collect a bucket of water. In such locality low income people migrated from all over the country displaced by political conflict are staying as poor renters.
