The ‘Revival of Ahar Pyne Systems (in Palamu district of Jharkhand)’ has won the Special Jury Mention under 'Conservation 4 Water Category' at CMS Vatavaran 2017 awards, New Delhi.

The film, made by Urban Sky Pictures’ Soumitra Dey documents the revival of an almost discontinued, traditional floodwater harvesting system, indigenous to Palamu district of Jharkhand and its miraculous success in irrigation.
