At a time when people are agitated over non-availability of water and ruthless merchants earning huge profits from selling water, a young advocate has shown the way to others. S.M.P. Amalan, who is practising in the High Court Bench here, has agricultural lands at Vinayagapuram. He wrote to the Collector Anshul Mishra on the Facebook: “Sir, I have a good drinking water well near Melur. I am ready to give water to our people. Please contact me on my mobile phone. To this, the Collector had replied, “Dear Mr. Amalan. Thanks for the help offered. We have instructed our official concerned to contact you in this regard. March 27.”

Hats off to Mr. Amalan.
