Women from the non-tribal sections fill up water in metal pots, from a nearby tap that is submerged in filthy water. Until a few years back, the tap was common to both sections of the village. After years of friction due to water sharing between the two groups, the Irulas managed to secure an exclusive tap for themselves. The non-tribals would not use the tap in the Irula section.
