Water crisis in India
On earth, it is said that there is 70% water and 30% land. But that doesn’t matter no more, the world is going to end if we all don’t take responsibility for it. Running after development doesn’t mean to destroy the nature and build more buildings. Factors like Pollution, wastage of water, Global warming is disturbing the water cycle.
Here are some shocking facts that have been evaluated which will blow your mind up. If these things are not taken care of, it will be hard to survive.
* India is facing a fresh water crisis. India has just 4% of the world’s fresh water.
* 76 million are without access to safe drinking water.
* 21% of country’s diseases are water related.
* According to the Composite Water Management Index (CWMI) report released by the Niti Ayog in
* Temperature breaking record in Delhi @48 Degree Celsius.
* Under 329,000 children under five due to diarrhoea in 2015.
The report claims that 12% of India’s population is already living the ‘Day Zero’ scenario.
The CMWI report also states that by 2030, the demand of water will become twice the available supply. It is projected that India will face severe water scarcity. India will face an eventual six percent loss in the country’s GDP.
We have all been taught about these on how to save water. But It is time we realise it is important for all us to stand together. We need to implement those things that were taught to us for the survival.
How can an individual save water?
This might sound to you as what you already know, but I need you to implement all the things. Take precautionary measures and save the world.
1. Convert your toilet to a dual flush. Don’t flush it more than necessary.
2. Stop the leaky toilets.
3. Don’t let the water running in your houses.
4. Set up a rain barrel this summer.
5. Take shorter showers.
6. Use your automatic dishwater for full loads only
7. If you wash dishes by hand, don’t leave the water running for rinsing.
Be concerned about these measures. Saving water will help us to survive and it is needed and If we don’t save water and keep wasting it, we all will face the wrath of drought. Spread the word as much as you can.
