The old Teldeniya town in Sri Lanka went underwater because of the Mahaweli water project. But this year a drought hit and the submerged town reappeared. I went in search of this town to see these beautiful yet sad looking patterns on the ground. I am standing inside the dried up Victoria reservoir; one of the biggest in Sri Lanka.
