INDIA-SHIMLA-DROUGHT-TOURISM-SHIMLA

Indian residents gather to collect drinking water in buckets from an Indian Army water tanker as the city faces water shortage in Shimla, in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh on June 2, 2018. Helicopters doused forest fires raging near the drought-stricken Indian resort of Shimla on May 1 ore police were deployed to guard water tankers in the historic Himalayan town. Shimla's water shortage has been worsening for years but reached crisis point when supplies ran out last month, just as the population of 175,000 started growing by up to 100,000 for the summer season. / AFP PHOTO / -
