LIFE WITHOUT WATER – LIKE BEING IN HELL!!

LIFE WITHOUT WATER – LIKE BEING IN HELL!!

We always treat WATER to be at our constant service all year round and hardly give it a level of respect and importance that it deserves. Human survival is based on 2 important elements of nature, that is, Air for breathing and Water for sustenance. Most of the developing countries are unable to provide water to all its citizens at all times due to adverse weather conditions, lack of infrastructure, lack of budgets or bad governance. About 3 years ago, I was traveling for an environmental cause in India and upon reaching my destination in a remote village, I discovered that there was lack of water supply for drinking, cooking and bathing. The journey was by car and a long one through the scorching day. I was already haggard and tired when I realized that there was not a drop of fresh water, my knees sagged. Somehow the villagers could see me perturbed and they managed to fetch a bucket of water that I would not like to touch while at home. Anyway, I went to a corner with the bucket and washed my hands in it but did not have the courage to rinse my mouth or splash water on my face. It was that day that I realised that how life can be miserable with out water. I was not feeling frustrated about myself but I was really disturbed that how people in remote villages suffer on a daily basis without the basic necessity of life, which is dear Water. From that day I took a vow to propagate the value of Water and create awareness for all.
