Today, everybody is running in the race of the world. One can see development in varied sectors like technology, sciences, art, and lifestyle, etc. Man is at present busy running a race with time with a hope for a better future. But what to do with a life where there is a scarcity of water to drink?
We say that life expectancy is decreasing but think about “no water, no life.” Everybody is busy empowering themselves with all the riches of the world and are in unaware of the future wealth that is WATER. Today, water conservation has become a global agenda. It is also an agenda in the present Indian Budget.
In present milieu, the glaciers are melting and sea levels are rising, the land is submerging underwater but the human is still concerned about only his luxuries. What is the fun of such luxuries if even the richest will starve for water.
Who is responsible!!!
Today we say, that melting of glaciers and sea-level rise are natural calamities. No, it is all happening due to Al Nino Factor, Global Warming, Greenhouse effects, etc. which are actually man-made. He himself is leading to a path of destruction.
It’s just because of all these activities that the climate is changing at its even fast pace as possible. Today, weather changes are more sudden. At one time a country faces Heatwaves in the mid of the year and next month the same country gets flooded with rains.
Now the question is why there is so imbalance, why rivers are drying up? Where does water go?
Everyday gallons of water is flushed, taps are left running after use. Long hours showering is the answer, indiscriminate use of water is the cause. Everybody is aware of this issue, everybody knows it’s causes and impact. And we hope the government to save water for our future!! Why not ourselves only?
Now or Never
We are focusing on the development but forgetting, that today we need sustainable development. Today’s need is such a development which leaves our future generation with resources also. As “We have inherited the Earth from Our Future Generations So let us Give them back a nice place to inhabit.”
We can prevent wastage of water from today only. Today, every house is having one or two Air Conditioners, so the water that drips from air conditioners can be reused. Even one could use the wastewater from reverse Osmosis as to water the plants. Laws should be such that to prevent borewell drilling in every house. One could even practice desalination to get usable water from the seas.
In the end, ” Jal Hai Toh Kal hai.”
