Water is the lifeblood. Without it, all living things cannot survive. It is known that the actual biological evolution began in the womb of the sea. Freshwater getting polluted by us that was once plentiful in the name of development. We are wasting them by using more than unnecessary. Is it any wonder or exaggerated that in the near future there will be days of wars for it? The United Nations is celebrating World Water Day to prevent this from happening. It is held worldwide every March 22nd.
Its main objective is to augment groundwater, drain rainwater and use it properly, preventing misuse. In addition, awareness programs are being designed today to make the value of it available to future generations by making drinking and irrigated water available. This year, on the occasion of World Water Day, awareness seminars are being organized on ‘Water for the people, its value and how we can conserve that resource’. Usually, the value of the water we get is many times higher than the prescribed price.
