People collect water from a water tanker, in Bhiwandi, some 60 kilometer on the outskirts of Mumbai, India, 22 April 2016. According to reports, 21 districts in Maharashtra are drought-affected. The drought, which has been ongoing for the past five months, prompted 11 states to declare a drought in 2015 and has now choked the growth of kharif (monsoon) crops, including sesame, millet and rice, for the second monsoon season in a row.
