Two kids died out of sunstroke on Monday in a village of Adilabad district, Telangana. Reportedly, the two brothers — Madhukar (8) and Ashok (12),  were going to attend a wedding ceremony in a nearby village with their mother. On their way, the two brothers felt extremely thirsty. So the mother left them under a tree and went ahead to find water for them. She kept on looking for water in sweltering heat and eventually fainted unable to bear the water loss in her own body. After regaining consciousness in the evening, she asked the villagers around about her sons. But later their dead body was found. Local police have claimed that they died probably because of sunstroke.

The youngest state of India, Telangana, is reeling under acute water crises due to the worst ever drought in the state. The state that is mostly dependent on rainwater is not only facing a dearth of water in the villages but also the cities. And because of such a crisis, the state is also witnessing migration of small farmers into other states. According to farmers’ organisations, nearly 1.4 million people have migrated from the worst affected districts of Mahabubnagar, Ranga Reddy, Medak, Nizamabad and Adilabad.

The state though sought Rs 3,064 crore from the Central Government, but Delhi announced to provide Rs 791 crore, out of which only 400 crore has been released.

For drinking water also the state had demanded Rs 555 crore, whereas the Centre released Rs 72 crore.


The Logical Indian urges the central government to send more relief funds to the state of Andhra Pradesh. The acute drought is taking around lives of 20-25 people every day. Immediate action must be taken to bring some respite to the dwelling population of the state.
