Each drop of WATER matters

‘We never know the worth of water till the well is dry’.

Thomas Fuller

Certainly, no great Scientist, industrialist or anyone has ever emerged to be producers of ‘Water’ yet, none could ever proceed their inventions without ‘Water’. Resources are gifts of nature, exploitation is our right, and planned meticulous use is our responsibility. Accede to right thoughts and actions acceptable to your conscience, situations and requirements. 

 

Availability and requirement of ‘Water’ as a precious resource vary from place to place depending on many natural features. ‘Water’ is one such resource, we are stewards fully responsible for its exploitation as we are well aware the requirement of water in an agricultural area is not at par with a residential area, nor an industrial area. There is no ethics in making a detailed study of numbers in comparison between usage of ‘Water’ as a treasurable resource, preaching yet not practising.

 William Ashworth rightly stated ‘Children of a culture born in a water-rich environment, we have never really learned how important water is to us. We understand it, but we do not respect it’. Rainwater harvesting, farm ponds, rain pits and many more suggestions are on the move with just a small percentage practising and the larger group actively discussing.

 Look around you, many are struggling to access this treasured resource for their basic necessities, Rajasthan is a typical example where women walk miles carrying pots of water, Tribal areas of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, drinking unhealthy water are prone to diseases caused by unhygienic conditions where again its scarcity of water.

 Water has become our Global concern. Year after year, discussions, brainstorming sessions, and further gimmicks have turned out to be a ritual. Stop pointing at others and look into yourself, educate the members of your family, workplace and around you with simple solutions to preserve the tiniest droplets of water, be determined to stop wastage unconditionally.

Yes! Tiny droplets make a mighty Ocean.
