It mentions, “In trying to solve water problems, we often look for “optimal” solutions emanating from our disciplinary or sectorial perspectives. However, holding out for the best often means we miss other opportunities for positive change as the case of Gujarat, India shows”. Besides it states that “Jyotigram Scheme focuses on providing rationally managed subsidies where needed, and pricing where possible.”
