Water is the greatest gift of God to mankind. Water is a resource of prime importance. We need water for irrigation, industries, transport, drinking, bathing and several other purposes in every day life. Life on the earth would not have been evolved without water. Water has become indispensable for the disposal of urban sewage and dirt. Water is essential for the very existence of life on the globe.
Without water we cannot survive. Agriculture is the major source of food for us. Water is essential for raising food crops. Fish which make up a large chunk of our food and their existence depends on water. Forests which provide us numerous things and keep our ecological balance intact also need water. Water is an excellent and cheap resource for generating hydroelectricity. It is a renewable and pollution-free source of energy, essential for modern comfortable living. Therefore, water is indispensable in our day to day life.
When water supply is normal, we don't care about the importance of water. We use it carelessly. Rather, we waste a lot of water. But when the taps are dry, we become very worried. All work comes to a standstill. When there is no water we cannot do washing, cleaning or bathing. We cannot cook our meals and have no water to drink. People run to all places in search of water, carrying cans and buckets. The day without water causes a lot of problems and hardships. A day without water only makes us realise the importance of water.
