Deep, Deeper, Deepest

A rare cuboid shaped  100ft deep well in Byrapura, Devanahalli  - privately owned by Venkatesh. It really is quite a site to see. Also hard to imagine how it might have been dug

Much like all other wells in the area, this well too has run dry. Venkatesh says its been dry the past 10 years. When he was a teenager he remembers swimming in the well. When he was still younger he thinks it used to fill to the brim. The ledges (for placing the motor) at different levels - deeper every time -  tell the story of the falling water levels.
