A 17-year-old boy from Settisara village in Sagar taluk, Karnataka, has single-handedly dug a 55-feet-deep open well to reduce the hardship of his mother, who had to travel to the public well to fetch water every day after returning home from work.

Every household with decent income in  the locality have their own well dug in the backyard, but due to poverty, Pavan Kumar’s family could not afford one.

Pavan saw his mother, who works at a printing unit in Sagar, fetching water every day from local well that was half a kilometre away. Seeing her hardship, Pawan decided to help her by finding  a permanent solution to her woes. Thus he dug the well at the backyard of his house.

After seeking advice from a local hydrology expert, Pavan started digging the well in February 26 and in April 20 he finished digging it all by himself in just 45 days. He took a break in between for giving his pre-university exam. The family could not afford any labourers to do this work.

Pawan is very happy for his achievement now, as his mother does not have to go elsewhere to bring water.
