Topic Thursday: India & No Water by 2020

India water crissi 2020 ig quest

The more I watch what’s going on in the world, the more I realize how out of sync we as humans are with nature. We’re more consumed by the materialism of the world, that we’re failing to realize how these materialistic habits are hurting the environment and humanity. Something as necessary as water, is now a scarce source all over the world. Water conservation is a practice that needs to be put into effect, but with big companies more concerned about making a dollar instead of considering the welfare of humanity, it’s hard when you have a 3-story building built on top of what used to be a lake that was a main access source for water. Along with climate change and other economic factors, a plethora of countries do not have access to clean water or no water at all.

Major cities in India are suffering from a water crisis. India is known to have the following 6 seasons:

– Spring (Vasant Ritu)
– Summer (Grishma Ritu)
– Monsoon (Varsha Ritu)
– Autumn (Sharad Ritu)
– Pre-Winter (Hemant Ritu)
– Winter (Shita Ritu) .

Due to a delay in the Monsoon season, since 2015, India has been experiencing a water shortage. Monsoon season is the season India depends on for water supply. Cities such as Bangalore have to rely on tankers to supply water. Bangalore was once known as the city of lakes, but due to the urbanization and untreated waste being released into the lakes, water is now a scarce source in Bangalore.
Now the question becomes, will India have no water by 2020?
