The other day when I was washing hands after eating my meal, the water reminded of my grandmother– a noble and virtuous lady.
Whenever I accompanied her to the fields (my grandfather was a farmer) and asked for water, she used to say “We’re far away from human dwellings, and here, water is scarce, you must use it wisely. Don’t waste even a single drop. Every drop is precious.”
I feel bad when I see people wasting water. They leave the tap running, wash their cars and bikes with drinking water, let the water overflow from water tanks—they take it for granted.
Earlier, water was scarce in some places only, but nowadays, clean drinking water is becoming scarce almost everywhere.
The situation is really serious, and if we don’t act today, there’ll be no water left for tomorrow.
