Today 22 March is World water dayWater is so precious, no animal including humans, can live without it. Man can survive without food for months, but without water not even three days he can survive. We are actually forgetting the importance of water when we misuse it, pollute it, waste it.
In Kerala we are getting 300 cm rain every year. but we are now buy drinking water within a couple of months after the rainy season. Why we are not concerned about preserving it when it falls in front of our house, on our hills, in our forests, in our rivers, etc.
Water resource is depleting under the ground, because we do not allow the water to go down the earth. We cut down the trees, destroy hills, remove rocks,fill the paddy fields and ponds with soil brought from hills, we remove sand from river beds; all these inversely help preserve water on the surface of earth.
We are going to face a very serious problem as far as water is concerned with in the near future.
