Water is the most important part of our lives, even our bodies are made of 60 percent of water. It has been proved that man dies without water, so does almost all life around us, animals, birds and plants are all dependent on water. There is a water cycle that keeps replenishing the earth with water for its survival but man, in his disregard for nature, is destroying this balance. Global warming and the rupturing of ozone layer are clear indications that we are a destructive race.

The world wastes billions of liter water every day. We have to take care of this gift of nature or we will have no water left and would invite droughts and famine. In developed countries US 9 billion dollar is being sent to the drains, same is the case with Asian cities which is definitely a sign of alarm and should make this part of the world be more careful.
