We were driving from Bangalore to Kolar to play golf, and came up behind this huge agglomeration of water bottles. Somewhere underneath it all is a man on a motorbike. Many people in Bangalore live without a reliable water supply for drinking and cooking. They fill up plastic bottles every day from the water trucks which deliver water around the city. The same water trucks come to Palm Meadows, where we pay a monthly water bill to the Palm Meadows Owners’ Association. After a burst pipe in the kitchen last Friday, I guess our next bill will be enormous.
