“Eris are designed such that they are all interconnected, and if the water in one overflows, it automatically gets diverted to the next village. There are 39,000 such eris in Tamilnadu, and are a wonderful example of a natural, non-invasive method of using and sharing water. The only thing is that they must be de-silted regularly. Else, there will not be enough space to accommodate the water, and floods may result. The silt is actually excellent for the fertility of the soil in those areas. It was being beautifully managed until the British took over, and centralized the whole system, taking the control out of the hands of the local population. This has continued post-independence in the form of the State Public Works Department. De-centralization and local self-governance remains only in letter” — Sekhar Raghavan, Rain Centre, Chennai
