Now in his 80s, Aabid Surti is a multi-award winning artist and writer based in Mumbai, India and is founder of Drop Dead Foundation which is in effect a one-person organisation working with a few volunteer plumbers. This NGO repairs minor plumbing problems such as leaks in Mumbai households for free. Renowned in India more for his novels, comic books and travelogues, Aabid makes weekly rounds near his residence with his team of plumber and a volunteer fixing leaks to save tonnes of water. By doing this Aabid is addressing a topic close to his heart and his roots: he grew up on the pavements of Mumbai where, as a child, he saw his mother queuing up at 4 am for a bucket of water. 'I saw people fight for every drop. This childhood memory keeps haunting me whenever I see a dripping tap'. Drop Dead Foundation's motto is: 'Save every Drop or Drop Dead'.
