Save Water-Be An Earth Warrior!!!

Modern technology
Owes ecology
An apology.

This is what Alan Edisson once quoted and now is the high time for an apology. So, are you committed enough for a penance? Mother nature, who once brought you to this world is now helplessly looking forward to you to save her existence. If you desire to payback then here's a chance worth million...

GEENATHON-2, a noble initiative of NDTV and TOYOTA, is all set to do its part for the well-being of mother nature and brings forward 'SAVE WATER' as the theme for this year. In the previous year, Greenathon came with the initiative- 'Light a Billion Lives', jointly materialised by NDTV and TERI(The Energy and Resources Institute) and it turned out to be a grand success. Anyway, all this was to just provide the reader with some general awareness. Now the BIG QUESTION is- WHAT'S YOUR ROLL IN IT? HOW CAN YOU HELP? So, here's your answer...

GREENATHON- 2 will focus on our everyday activities that harm the environment like the use of plastic and wastage of water. For all this to materialise, your support and paticipation is requisite. In the near future, NDTV will be announcing the various programs and venues(various cities and villages) under the banner of GREENATHON-2 and you can actively participate in it. Also, if you have something special to share-any photo, views,video,suggestions etc., related to this initiative, then you can upload all this at ' '. This is a very interactive and knowledgeable site. Make sure to check it out.

If you are still shrugging- "Why would I care about all these foolish initiatives?", "Ahh, this is just for publicity, it will produce no results." Well, then I need to warn you my friend that it is predicted that- The wars of the twenty-first century will be fought not over territorial boundaries but over water. So,its very important for us to actively participate and help nourish this campaign.The activist is not the man who says the river is dirty. The activist is the man who cleans up the river.

So, pull up your socks and do your bit for this earnest effort. Start preparing slogans, skits, articles. Take photographs of places which you think need attention and post on the mentioned website to help it improve. Most importantly, inform others also about this Campaign. Thomas Fuller once said," We never know the worth of water till the well is dry." Its time to tell him that he his wrong and we have realised the importance of water much before and will restore it to its previous elegance. Let's together make it possible!!!
Take care of the earth and she will take care of you.

  4. Hmm...SAVE WATER huh?? well we have been reading this for quite some time now: from our science books n all.But as we kept reading this again n again,i guess this field has yet to c any true progress. But i think everyone's contribution,no matter how small that may be,amounts to something big and fruitful. Hoping that this initiative results in grand success as well.
    But recently I saw a quote on someone's T-shirt saying "SAVE WATER,DRINK BEER" :D sry cuz am unable to help this generous cause this way :). Anyways nice article again boss.
