Khadi’s is a traditional way of harvesting rain water and it is mainly followed by people of Rajasthan. These are very long earthen embankments which are built across the lower edge of the sloping farmlands which are called bund. Rain water flows down the slopes and fills the bunds to form a reservoir. Pathways are made from bund to nearby well which is mainly dug behind the bund where water seeps and fills the wells.
