Water is finite, value it!

The elixir of life, the basic neccessity of a living being, the stablizer of weather, the beauty of nature, the first medicine to mankind, so many tags for just one name, Water. But do we actually value it enough?

That’s the biggest question of the hour and remains so since quite a long time. That’s because ignorance in water conservancy has always been constant from our end, the only difference between then and now is that water scarcity situation has become much more alarming and threatening.

Someone has rightly said, “No blue, No green.” Green signifies life, growth and development. If there’s no blue(water), there’s definitely no chance of green(growth) as water plays a major part of driving our nature and its habitants. I don’t think anyone needs to be explained what water does for us, it’s quite evident to everyone how important water is for us. However, despite knowing all, we tend to take water for granted, sometimes unknowingly and other times deliberately.

How many of us get so busy in adoring ourselves in mirror of our bathrooms that we almost forget that the tap is still on?
And how many of us prefer showering instead of using water buckets?
I see many hands up, one of which is mine too.

I once read that our mind constitutes of three parts, conscious mind, sub-conscious mind and the last is unconscious mind. The conscious mind comprises of all the present thoughts that are concerned to us, followed by sub-conscious which contains thoughts that are somewhere remembered by us but we don’t think about them frequently. And lastly, the unconscious mind has thoughts which are almost forgotten and very difficult to recall. We have a tendency to neglect and overlook things that are not reminded to us time and again as the thoughts gradually travel from our conscious to unconscious mind. So, it’s very important for all of us to remind each other about the goodness and greatness of water so that we never overlook the unnecessary usage, “wastage” of water and try to conserve it for our coming generations as much as we can.

The most important and alarming fact about water is that “water is finite”. Though it is renewable but that solely depends upon our practices and water management.

We as individuals can easily contribute towards water conservation by taking small steps towards saving water in our everyday lives. One such remarkable contributor to water conservation is Livpure which has taken the initiative of introducing the wonderful and innovative concept of #CuttingPani inspired by the cutting chai culture of Mumbai, encouraging people to ask for only needful amount of drinking water and thus promoting the efficient use of water. I have already signed the petition for adopting #CuttingPaani initiave. I hope you do your part by clicking here.

#CuttingPani reminds me of an incident where my mother taught me to always bring empty glasses and a jug full of water for guests so I could serve them only the needful. I have followed the same practice since then, little did I know that indirectly I am too contributing towards saving our irreplaceable resource, water. If we all follow and spread the ethics of saving water by taking little initiatives like #CuttingPani in our daily routine, a lot of water can be saved for other necessities of life and for our younger ones too.
