为了打两罐水,10岁男孩坐火车跋涉14公里

MUKUNDWADI, AURANGABAD: For his size and age, ten-year-old Siddharth Dhage shoulders a heavy burden. Every day, the Class II student risks life and limb to travel 14 kilometres on the Aurangabad-Hyderabad Passenger just to bring home two cans of water. He isn’t alone in this—other kids from his locality – such as 12-year-old Ayesha Garud and her 9-year-old sister Sakshi -- also take the train for the same reason.

就他的体格和年龄而言,10岁的西达尔特·达奇的负担可谓承重。每天,这名二年级学生都要冒着生命危险乘坐奥兰加巴德至海德拉巴的客运列车跋涉14公里,只为带回两罐水。他并不是唯一一个这样做的人,他所在地区的其他孩子——比如12岁的艾莎·加鲁德和她9岁的妹妹沙克希也是如此。

These children tell the story of how hard the drought has hit the Marathwada region. Over 7,000 villages have been affected by it, forcing lakhs of women and children to walk for several kilometres a day just to fill a single bucket.

这些孩子讲述了干旱如何重创马拉瓦达地区的故事。超过7000个村庄受到影响,迫使成千上万的妇女和儿童每天步行数公里,只为打一桶水。

Siddharth’s water trek is more complicated. He leaves home around noon, walks to Mukundwadi railway station, hops on a train to Aurangabad city station to draw water from the station taps there, only to return home by 5:30pm. It is seven kilometres one way, but the train is often late by three hours. Siddharth, Ayesha, Sakshi and others like them wait under a tree till the train comes. But when it comes, they only have a few minutes to board before it moves. So there is often a mad scramble, which has caused injuries in the past, but which could be much more dangerous than that. Once aboard, Siddharth finds a spot on the floor in the aisle and takes up only as much space as one of his two water cans.

西达尔特的取水之路要复杂得多。他中午左右离家,步行到穆昆瓦迪火车站,登上火车到奥兰加巴德市站,从那里打水,下午5:30才能到家。单程七公里,但火车经常晚点三小时。西达尔特、艾莎、沙克希和其他同行人在树下等火车。火车到站后,他们只有几分钟的时间上车,所以经常要拼命挤上车,以前就出过事故,但还有比这更危险的。上了火车,西达尔特在过道上找个地方,只占一个水罐大小的位置。

At Aurangabad station, Siddharth has only 40 minutes to fill up his cans. The more difficult part comes after that: to bring home the cans without spilling water. In a packed train, one can imagine how tough that is. Of course, he would rather play with his mates during this summer break than do this, but he has no choice with both his parents busy working to make both ends meet.

在奥兰加巴德站,西达尔特只有40分钟的时间装水。更难的是,要在水不溢出的情况下,把水罐带回家。在拥挤的火车上,你可以想象这有多难。本来希望暑假的时候和朋友们好好玩一,然而没有选择,父母忙着赚钱糊口,只能让他去打水。

Others who live in the small housing units in Nirmala Devi Nagar, a locality that has no municipal tap supply, also struggle for water. In this community of 300 homes where most are daily wagers, a 200-litre water drum sells for Rs 60, and monthly charges for municipal water tankers, which come just once every four days, can reach Rs 1,150. With nearly all the borewells drying up, about 35 families can no longer afford even the emergency supply. So, it is an all hands on deck situation.

其他住在Nirmala Devi Nagar的人也在为水而挣扎,这个地方没有市政自来水供应。在这个拥有300户居民的社区里,能装200升水的水桶售价为60卢比,而市政水车每四天才来一次。由于几乎所有的水井都干涸了,大约35个家庭甚至连应急供应的水都买不起。情况非常紧急。

Sumanbai Navgire, 51, who has been a resident of Nirmala Devi Nagar for 20 years, also relies on the train ride for water. She has a 300-foot borewell, but it has been bone dry since April. So, Navgire had to quit work to fetch water. Now, she doubles up as the guardian of the ‘water kids’ taking the train.

51岁的苏曼拜·纳弗吉尔已经在Nirmala Devi Nagar住了20年。她有一口300英尺深的井,4月以来就干了。所以,纳弗吉尔不得不辞掉工作去打水。现在,她又兼做“打水儿童”坐火车时的监护人。

But guardian or not, the parents of the children are a worried lot. “We know this trip by train is risky, but it’s our only way to get some water,” said Jyoti, Siddharth’s mother. Sakshi and Ayesha’s parents can’t afford to skip work either because the children, enrolled in a private school, need books and uniforms for the next academic year that starts on Monday.

不管有没有监护人,孩子们的父母都非常担心。沙克希和艾莎的父母也不能旷工去打水,而且就读于私立学校的孩子们在下周一开始的新学年又要交书本费和校服费了。

Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) mayor Nandkumar Ghodele expressed helplessness over the situation. “I feel very sorry for these people, but we can’t help. Our priority is to provide drinking water to those who pay water charges. We wish we could help everyone, but we are facing a severe water crisis,” Ghodele said.

奥兰加巴德市长Nandkumar Ghodele对这种情况表示无能为力:“我为这些人感到非常难过,但我们无能为力。我们的首要任务是为那些付得起水费的人提供饮用水。我们希望能帮助每个人,但我们正面临严重的水资源危机。”

We know this trip by train is risky, but it’s our only way to get some water

Jyoti, 10-year-old Siddharth’s mother

10岁西达尔特的母亲乔蒂说:“我们知道让孩子独自坐火车很危险,但这是我们唯一能获得水的方式”

Meanwhile, childhoods are being lost in this search for a commodity that is growing ever scarcer – water.

在寻求一种越来越稀缺的商品——水的过程中,孩子们失去了美好的童年。

If this is the plight of some Indian citizen even after 70 years of independence, what are our high profile Indian politicians doing? When the Arabs can turn deserts into green play grounds, pastures, amusement parks, etc, India, a monsoon land is crying for water. It is a shane.

在独立70年后,印度公民依然面临这种困境,印度高层在做什么?阿拉伯人能把沙漠改造成绿色的游乐场,改造成绿油油的牧场,而印度处于季风区,还缺水。丢脸
