World Water Day is Thursday, March 22, and a coalition of organizations is rallying in the state capital to show elected leaders that affordable and protected water is a priority in MI.

"The theme for the World Water Day 2018 is "Nature for Water".

Pertinently, a documentary highlighting importance of fresh water, repercussions of misuse of drinking water and unabated pollution in water bodies was screened for awareness of audiences.

The Headmistress of the Anoff School, Madam Dora Ayesu in her remarks stated that "the intervention of Voltic is key in resolving the challenge of looking on as 600 pupils travel several miles to fetch water". However, with each passing day and owing to the reckless actions of human beings, the dearth of safe water has emerged as a glaring problem. This leaves the communities, that possess an already thin budget, to cover the remaining 20% for any water system project. "We only test for specific things at that level, but you can contact the water treatment plant if you would like to participate".

The intentions of the United Nations to bring water to light is appreciated but it is not enough for those that have to suffer lack of good water. There is a water crisis in many parts of the world and thus, people are becoming ill, it is also affecting their livelihoods and education. Meanwhile, almost 300,000 children under five continue to die every year because of diarrhoea linked to dirty water, poor toilets and poor hygiene.

Tarigami, who is also chairman of the committee on Environment of J&K legislative Assembly, said with modernisation, industrial development, use of chemicals in agriculture and waste disposal, both surface and ground water are getting more and more polluted each day.

According to the site, there are over 663 million people living without "a safe water supply close to home, spending countless hours queuing or trekking to distant sources, and coping with the health impacts of using contaminated water".

Damaged ecosystems affect the quantity and quality of water available for human consumption.

Each year there will be some special and different theme for every world water day. the theme for the year 2015 was, "water and sustainable development", The theme for the year 2016 was "better water, better jobs", the theme for the year 2017 was "why waste water".

In Rampur, after two days of water shortage, water starts to flow from the taps once again. The soil will become dry and lifeless if there is no water and the air will also change the composition.
