Latur has been in the news for quite some time now as it is reeling under severe water crises. Over half-a-million people of the drought-hit region have been running around trying to find water from elsewhere.  Amidst such hostility, one man is distributing water in his neighbourhood for free so that they might get some relief from the crises.

Sheikh Mateen Musa has been distributing over 10,000 litres of water every day for the last three months and providing hope to around 300 households. Mateen draws water from his bore well manually and distributes it to people who stand in long queue with their buckets and containers. He serve these people without any monetary gain.

Neighbours often tell him to charge money for water, but he sternly refuses and tells them to take as much water as they want.

Mateen Bhai’s story was brought to light by a video on the Facebook page Voice of Ram, which shows his benevolent actions. A mathematics teacher in a local school, Mateen Bhai considers his act to be a responsibility, as his house is the only one that has water in the entire neighbourhood.

Latur has been one of the worst-affected area in the parched state of Maharashtra. The government has been sending water in trains as a relief to people, but that alone is not meeting their requirements because nearly 60 million litres of water will be required to every day to suffice the need of the entire population of the region.


The Logical Indian hugely appreciates Mateen Bhai’s efforts to bring some relief to people. Such initiatives play small but significant roles in desperate times like these.
