Water Shortage or Wastage in Villages?

leave a comment »


While driving around Northern Maharashtra today, I noticed a familiar sight; people filling up water from water tankers. The water sources in the village have dried up and trucks are needed to get water from bigger towns or wells that still have water.

 I feel their pain and frustration as I used to fetch water in 30 liter cans on bicycle when we stayed at our bunglow in the village on the outskirts of the city.

 However what I saw made me realize once again why we face such shortage. People were wasting so much water! Streams had started flowing from the water spilled when filling up their cans and vessels.

 Sometimes I wonder how they don’t realize their folly? and this scene is not rare, these people cry that they don’t have water to drink. And when the tanker comes to the village, half of it goes down the gutter thatnks to the same people.
