Namaskar to all. Even after around 70 years of Independence also, crores of people don’t have enough safe drinking water. Then what is the use of Independence. Water water water everywhere water but for drinking no water! Around 70% of our Mother Earth is covered with water. In it around 97% is in oceans and seas. Only around 3% of this water is freshwater, and in that also most water is in ice and groundwater. Less than 0.3% of all freshwater is in rivers, lakes, and the atmosphere. Now a days we are polluting them also with the help of cooperation and implementation of norms of Government. India have 17% population ,but only 4% fresh water.
Thousands of children are dying every day due to water related problems and diseases. If we let them live who knows they might become Abdul kalams or Vivekanandas or Sardar vallabhbhai patels or Mother Teresas or any other great persons. Who is responsible for their deaths? And when it is going to stop? The World Bank estimates that 21 percent of communicable diseases in India are linked to unsafe water and the lack of hygiene practices and the actual may be even much higher! So crores of people(children, pregnants ,elders,others) are dying each year due to water related problems and crores have been suffering from various ills due to lack of Safe Water. Lack of safe water is killing more persons than terrorism. So governments(all govts from Independence to till present) failure of providing enough safe water to all is more dangerous and to be considered than terrorism or even a war.
In India ground water-depleted, surface water-polluted, rainfall-wasted. On other hand population increases, consumption increases, demand increases but quality and quantity of safe water decreases so scarcity of water arises. So we have to avoid pollution, plant trees, conserve water& do rainwater harvesting, comeup with new technologies & Innovations, improve/increase water purification systems, do sea water salination, increase awareness of water footprint.
Overall more people in rural India have access to phones than to safe drinking water. Mostly women are responsible for finding and collecting water for their families. All the water they need for drinking, washing, cooking, cleaning. They walk miles, carry heavy burdens, wait for hours and pay exorbitant prices. The work is back-breaking and all-consuming. Often the water is contaminated, even deadly. In these instances, they face an impossible choice – certain death without water or possible death from illness. Women and children spend around 125 million hours each day collecting water Time spent gathering water around the world translates to $24 billion in lost economic benefits each year. Women and children bear the primary responsibility for water collection. Women and girls often spend up to 6 hours each day collecting water. Reductions in time spent collecting water have been found to increase school attendance and earnings to survive in their life. Across India, millions of women are wasting precious time collecting dirty water, children are dying from preventable diarrhoeal diseases, and as a result communities as a whole suffer. In some states people marry 2 or 3 wifes for getting water!
India ranks a dismal 120 out of 122 nations for its water quality and 133rd out of 180 nations for its water availability. Less than 50% of rural households in India are reached by piped water supplies. More than half of the pipes in rural areas in India deliver untreated water. Government of India has made a Strategic Plan for providing drinking water supply in rural areas in the country for the period 2011-2022 to cover 90% population.If Govt plan(no guarantee for complete implementation within time) to provide safe water to all by 2022 or 2030(sustainable development!) till then why crores of people have to dye and suffer due to lack of enough safe water. Till then all related government personals and their families are ready to drink and use unsafe water like Arsenic or fluoride or iron contaminated water? What kind of water President, PM, Ministries, All parties MPs and MLAs are drinking/using same kind of water should be provided to every Indian or vice versa. We are not even asking to provide all basic necessities to live, we are asking to provide only Safe water for all soon.
We are not against any particular persons or any particular parties.We are pleading the Government(all parties) to provide enough safe water to all very soon(within few months,please don’t delay it for years).All parties, general public,Media have fight and opposed on various issues at various times at various places. We request all(people ,parties,media) to be united and not rest till the Safe water issue is resolved soon completely and let us show the world real Unity in Diversity in India when it is required. Let us come up with different viable solutions to resolve it ASAP by out of box thinking. Because every day we delayed we are loosing thousands of lifes which is more worst than terrorism!
We particularly request our beloved PM shri Narendra Modi to respond and resolve Safe drinking water problem ASAP. We also request Water resources minister to solve this issue and take actions on all who are polluting water and ensure safe water access to all people in India very soon!
(Only when the media/people is unable to report any drinking water problem in India, then only it has solved! Completely. But not according to govt statistics… Also don’t forget to conserve the Water.)
