‘Aqua-man’ Mustapha slakes Chekannur’s thirst

Tirur: When Chekannur-native Mustapha started a potable water distribution scheme five years back, the scoffers were many. But even then, the Good Samaritan knew that he would be proved right. Now, as the land reels under the grip of draught they sing a different tune. All the wells in Mele Pottur colony are dry, as in other houses in Chekannur. But all it takes is a missed call to summon Mustapha, who turns on the walve, sending the precious resource coursing through taps to nearly 65 households, including those in the colony. Even water carriers and lorries carry it to the needy. Beneficiaries, Vilasini, Lalitha and Omana share their experience with ‘Mathrubhumi News,’ as does the altruist.
