Maharashtra is lurching under a very severe drought this year due to insufficient rains. We should not waste water. We should also not leave the water running when we are brushing our teeth, washing clothes, shaving or cleaning dishes. We should keep the tap closed and not let the water go running unnecessarily. Water is precious and cost money. There are millions or people in Maharashtra who are not getting a drop of water in their taps since September 2015. We must think of them. We must also not waste water by using a hose to water the plants in our garden.
