So preserving water and not polluting it is of paramount importance and each and everyone of us in a thickly populated country like India should realise this and control usage water to the optimum level. As water levels go down considerably we should plan for Rain Water Harvesting as in Tamil Nadu. We are heading towards and placed on the brink of a catastrophe and buying water with ground water drying up, remember the golden words. It is time for retrospection at this crucial juncture as the water shortage threat throughout the world is catching up thick and fast. It is time to nationalise river waters. The dirty picture shows that the rivers in Maharashtra are having most polluted water and it is high time to take remedial measures before we face the worst.
