Learn water management – Arrest wastage ; Make best use of every drop

published on May 28, 2013

Deendayal Research Institute (DRI) organised a lecture in New Delhi on May 10 on water discipline. The lecture was delivered by noted water expert Dr Sudhirendra Sharma. Dr Sharma said water discipline means arresting wastage of water and making best use of every drop available. He said water scarcity needs everybody’s attention and we all have to understand how we are wasting the water. We waste hundreds of litres of water every day even while shaving or brushing the teeth. Not only this, the flush that we use after going to toilet, also wastes about 14 litres of water every time. We all need to think of it.

He said the capitalism treats the people only as consumers. Therefore, everything is being sold. The sale of water is part of the same game plan. The nation needs changes in such policies urgently. The prime reason of the growing water problem is the existing system. The water availability in 2001 was 18 lakh litres, which reduced to 15 lakh litres in 2011. There is very possibility that it might have got reduced to 10 lakh litres. Despite that we do not seem ready to preserve water. We take water from the rivers, but do not want to think how to keep the rivers alive by  keeping them clean and ensuring minimum flow there.

Speaking on the occasion senior journalist Shri Atul Jain said our ancestors followed the strict water discipline. That is why they made adequate arrangements for its preservation. Many other eminent people of Delhi were also present on the occasion.
