Har ek boondh zaroori hota hai!

Now, how precious do you think is Water? Not just the drinking Water but Water in whole. You need Water right from the time you get up in the morning. First you need Water to brush your teeth. Then for potty. Then bath. Then when you go to pee multiple times in a day. To wash your hands before and after every meal. To clean the house. To clean the utensils. And the list is endless...

How would you actually manage when your watchman comes and tells you that there is no bore Water for the entire day? You will feel helpless. You did not store Water in advance. Not a drop in any of the buckets. That's exactly what has happened to every family living in our complex. We were told that there will not be Water for the whole day. And we were like OMG!



This was not for a day. Our building maintenance uncle took good 2 days to analyze why there is a water problem. Either the ground water level has gone down or the motor might need a repair. On the whole, we have been suffereing since 5 days with minimal water supply. The problem is still not fixed and we have started saving bore Water just like how we save drinking Water. We are given water once or twice a day which is just enough for all of us to take bath or go to potty. We try to store as much Water as we can.

This problem has got me ponder over how important Water is to mankind or for that matter to Earth. I wonder how the animals roaming on the roads and birds in specific survive during summers. It's so difficult for humans to survive without water even for a day! And these poor creatures have been victims of our development. For that matter, even Dusty feels restless when it is too hot and sits in the bathroom just to feel a little cold.

I take an oath that I will never waste water in my life! Har ek boondh zaroori hai yaar!

  2. Bang on, Namrata!! U said it - its sad to find people wasting water when drinking water is slowing becoming an endangered specimen. :)

    But I do hope somebody finds out a mechanism to use the ocean water for our use.. I guess there still are means but I'm not sure if there's anything done on a large scale yet..

    Very right thought to start te morning with, Namrata :)

    1. Can't agree more with you Raj. We humans are the worst creatures to have been created in this world. We do not even let the animals live. :(

      I am glad you liked my post :)

  4. superb writing...we don't realize the importance of water as we have it in abundance...but the time is not too far when it would too be a scarce commodity...we should be aware of this impending threat in the future and work towards it now...a really great thought :-)

  9. Hey, this is a great post.... you're so right, its an absolute pain having to go even an hour without water in the taps.... we've all got to conserve. We can start by not leaving the tap running while brushing and not standing aimlessly in the shower for ages!
