This is a story of a small river Arvari which originates in Thanagazi block of Alwar, Rajasthan. The river had dried up for years but has come back to life through the concerted efforts of the villagers assisted by Tarun Bharat Sangh (TBS), a local voluntary group. The first step to bring this river back to life began in 1987 by constructing small water harvesting structures called johad in a vilage Bhavta. The success of this structure was followed by construction of several such johads in other adjoining villages.
