In absence of a bridge, hundreds of people including school children in an Indian village have to cross a river using a boat made of plastic drums. For years, this makeshift boat made up of two plastic drums fitted on to a wooden base with the help of ropes has remained the only mode of transportation for people in Tungni village in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Every day people - including school kids, elderly people and woman, risk their lives and use this boat to cross the 35-meter wide and 12ft deep Lakhunder river. Whether it is to go to school, work or to see a doctor in the hospital, using this boat is the only way for the people of this village to cross the river.

China should build a glass-bottom bridge over that river.
