The people of Southern Rajasthan live in extreme conditions where water food and healthcare are a continual problem. Years of drought and environmental degradation due to climate change have caused villages in the Aravali Ranges to become isolated and suffer health issues resulting from poverty, drought, tainted water supplies and malnutrition. They are among the most marginalised people in India.
