One of the greatest challenges that humanity is doomed with is that taps run dry in some regions. While many grapples with the basic need for cooking, washing, drinking and even farming, there are many more facing the calamities of climate, as floods and lashing storms ravage homes and landscapes.

Speaking about the campaign, Amitabh Bachchan who is the campaign ambassador said, 

While some of us have been fortunate enough to have water to fulfil all of our needs, there are close to 600 million people in our country who face water scarcity every day. Keeping that in mind, I believe that it is our duty and responsibility to preserve water for these people as well as our future generations. It is the small changes that will lead to a national transformation, which can also lead to impactful results. With this campaign, each of us should pledge our support to the cause of water conservation in the country.
