Water-Water No where!

Ponds are drying up, cities are waiting for water-tankers to be delivered every alternate day. And for those who can't afford a Rs. 500 - Rs.200 water-tanker, would fight with their neighbors for water every day, with their children waiting-watching-praying in front of the municipality water tap to come into life.

India, should stop worrying about its population problem anymore, rather it should it'd worry about cemetery shortages in the country! Because more number of people would be dying for the lack of potable water tomorrow than taking birth!

These higher/middle income people (like us) should not worry about this...

You, people....

You would waste 1 hour a day watching channels like Astha!, you would love to cry for 2 hours a day for those Ekta Kapoor kind of serials, and wouldn't stop talking about the miseries of the world while watching those 'breaking news laden' news (I call them mis-use) channels, but would not hesitate to leave the water tap open for 20 mins while 'Dove' takes care of your so called outer beauties... You are HYPOCRITES!!!

If you really want to understand an iota of the problem, then you don't need to travel upto Rajasthan or any other place like that or it... Because you can watch the reality show anywhere you want. Go to the populated areas of the city you are currently in, see people fighting for a tiny drop of the thing that you flushed out in abundance during morning!

Many of tomorrow's big businesses would be based on water. Because it is the only scarce resource after air, without which nobody can survive... Another opportunity for exploitation. Cheers!
