“ Thousands have lived without love, but no one without water”, W.H. Auden , American English Poet has very well explained the importance of love in his thoughts.

Nature has created water, soil and air. All the three components are critical for humans, animals and plant life on our planet. But water is the most essential natural resource on earth.

Water is the ultimate life supporting system to humans. Drinking water is a source of nutrition for humanity. Hydrogen atoms in water reduces the heat on earth.

This indicates that the water is important of existence of life and for maintaining ecological balance as well!


French explorer Jacques has well said that the water cycle and life cycle are the one.


Out of 71% of water on earth only 2.5% consists of freshwater , that is, usable but unfortunately sheerly wasted by us. Burgeoning population also engraves the problem of water scarcity.

Hence, being responsible individuals, it’s our duty to embrace nature’s creation and to protect it from being wasted.
