A:

Dear Tanishqa,

Since long, in arid regions of Rajasthan, people have been collecting rooftop water in order to store water in an underground structure. They have been using the agricultural fields as water storage structures. This also makes the soil moist. In earlier times, people built johad, a rainwater storage tank which collected rainwater and was used for drinking purposes of humans and cattle.
