Syntex Water Tanks

The Indian city skyline is dotted with small and large syntex tanks. It is an uglification of the cities, but with an important purpose. The municipality supplies water only at certain hours of the day and this supply is also shut down for repairs at times. More often, the water mafia slows or shuts down the supplies, accepting bribes to improve the supply. Ground level civic employees or chabiwalas hold the key to the water and they are exploiting it to the hilt, causing a water shortage in residential areas. That is why most households are forced to store water. In any case municipal water does not have enough force for it to climb up, making overhead tanks a necessity.
