Water is the universally source of life for us all, without this presious resource life would cease to exist..
At the moment India is in the midst of a water crisis that has gripped the entire country. With seventeen percent of the world’s population and just four percent of its fresh water and a population at over one billion people and counting its clear that with the current infrastructure and water management polices, India's water woes are only going to worsen. With Internal economic migration to urban areas from the countryside, the country's cities are bursting at the seams, housing shortages, water cuts, traffic congestion, pollution and a lack of basic services are the reality for millions living in India.
Delhi's Yumuna river has been heavily polluted with raw sewage and industrial waste turning this once clean river into a bubbling black mess, fifty seven million people depend on the Yumuna, as the river supplies seventy percent of Delhi's water. More than two hundred thousand Farmers in India who depend on monsoon rains are turning to suicide from lack of water and failed crops due to climate change.
Its urgent that the Central and State Governments take steps to educate people that water has become an increasingly precious and expensive resource that everyone must conserve; otherwise, this crisis can easily turn into a disaster.
