Dear Students, Welcome to Pinnacle online SSC Coaching Portal. This is the time when you all have already submitted application for SSC CGL 2017 and with this the reverse countdown for tier1 starts. I believe you must be preparing with best of your ability. We generally spend a few hours daily online on Social media. Usually this time is not very productive with respect to preparation. We use it as a time off from preparation. Now, think if the time spent online becomes more productive than the normal preparation itself. Sounds crazy, isn’t it?  We at Pinnacle want your time spent online to get as meaningful as it can be. Here comes Day73-English of MISSION SSC CGL 2017 day wise Comprehensive revision series.

India is chiefly an agricultural land. The cultivation of crops depends on a proper supply of water throughout the year. Since olden times, large parts of our country have suffered from occasional periods of too much rain and those of roughs. People have known that if surplus flood water could be stored away for use during the dry season, these problems will be solved. Unfortunately, they had neither the knowledge nor the means to do much in this direction. Whatever little they knew, they tried to put into practice. They dug canals to drain water from perennial rivers. This was heavy and expensive work and practicable over only a small area. Large tanks were excavated and small dams built to hold back floods.
