The Water Problem – Episode 4 – The Heroes

Local people taking the responsibility of water resources in their area in their hands is the pinnacle of effective water management in India.

The town of Moodbidri northeast of Mangalore is a shining example of how they take care of their water sources, and came out of perilous situation that prevailed before. You can read about their story here: https://www.thebetterindia.com/159078/moodbidri-water-revival-karnataka-news-india

Together, as a community, Moodbidri has restored 18 water resources!  They worked on reinstating the old water storage bodies by cleaning them and making them hold pure water!  That’s gold!

India is facing huge water shortage because of real estate, agriculture, and mindless human reproduction.  Local efforts like this give us hope. We will continue to create awareness about how to take care of ourselves.

If you are inspired by this story, please share it far and wide in your social media circles and talk about it to your contacts through word of mouth.

Love always!

The Water problem – Episode 3 – The Heroes

Whenever we talk about big issues like population, food, or water, all of us are taken aback on what we could do on a personal level. In fact, we restrict our efforts to very minimal, get satisfied that that’s all we could do. While every small efforts are appreciated, we need to think out-of-the-box, open up our minds and look at things at various angles on how we could help.

Many of us are well-educated, with degrees on various subjects, and will be able to help in several ways. Many heroes are inspiring to me in how much we could help. I came across one inspiring example today in Times of India – in the article about how a 82-year old man constructed 14 tanks in an arid region to keep his hill green!  In fact, he had invested whatever he had just for this cause!  Such ingenuity and enterpreneurship is the need of the hour – to solve our big problems!

If a man with very scarce resources can do so much, imagine how much we could do! It’s just a matter of heart. In today’s world of instant reachability and abundant resources, I don’t think it would never be a problem for us.

More to come!
