ONE DROP REVOLUTION by Shambhavi Sathish
Updated: Nov 28, 2019
Water is one of the prime elements of Nature responsible for life on earth. It is needless to say that without clean and fresh drinking water, human life will not stand even the slightest chance of survival. Cleaning, cooking, washing, farming, manufacturing goods and such varied activities exclusively depend on water. We all know that water is a limited resource and should be used judiciously. But our experience says that down the decades, the groundwater level has been sinking sharply, causing severe droughts across the globe. The world at large is suffering because of severe water shortage. Experts say that by 2025, an estimated 1.8 billion people will live in areas plagued by water crisis. It is high time we had started using water cautiously and conscientiously.
With a view to creating awareness among people relating to conserving and using water responsibly, our organization has set up a project called “One Drop Revolution“. Of course, ecosystems, human life and wildlife should not suffer due to water shortage. Hence, our idea is to approach, on a regular schedule, institutions and individuals, homes and habitats to convince our fellow-beings of how important every drop of water is. We will offer simple water conservation tips and they will surely go a long way in saving our planet from water crisis. Water management will preserve our environment, guard us against rising costs and political conflict, minimize the ugly effects of drought and help build secure and beautiful communities.
There are two ways in which we can save our world from one of the greatest disasters that would even cause the death of the planet: the first one is to encourage judicial use of water and the second one is to save water, even if it is as little as a drop.
We shall help people change their lifestyle to reduce distress by water. Water conservation should be a way of life for all of us. We shall educate people in rainwater harvesting. They shall be awakened not to waste water. End of the day, they will realize that every drop of water is very important. We have decided to strive harder to make it happen.
Our concern about water is very clear. The state administration has already come forward to join hands with us in promoting this humble mission- “ONE DROP REVOLUTION”. This is a movement initiated by us to educate and enlighten people regarding the importance of saving water for human well-being.
