We will never know the worth of water till the well is dry - Thomas Fuller
Earth day is celebrated around the world to raise awareness about the planet we live in. Today, where we are facing challenges with water, our beloved TV celebs shared their views hoping to bring a change in the environment. This is what they had to say…
Pearl Puri: I do not understand how people choose to waste water. Time and again we have been told about the scarcity of water in the world and how it is affecting many draught hit areas. We are fortunate that we get it as our basic necessity, but we should also think about those who don’t. Hence, I would insist everyone to work on this together and make sure we reduce wasting water and use it wisely. Also, we should stop polluting it, as it will only make our life healthy and easy.
Rohan Rai: I believe water pollution is something that we always ignore. We do not realise that the air is also dependant on water. 75% of the human body is water. We have always known that impure water is a huge problem for mankind. We tend to waste it every now and then, without realizing that how important it is to preserve it. There are so many diseases that are caused due to impure water. And now since the monsoons are arriving, we must take measures to preserve and save water and take responsibility to keep it clean.
Ssharad Malhotraa: Individuals can only do so much when it comes to keeping water clean and throwing garbage at the right place . Businesses and industries are often the culprits when it comes to water pollution. In order to protect the earth's water, concerned citizens should speak up.
Vivian Dsena: Water recycling is very important as we already have the water shortage in the city and the state. The water used for washing vegetables should be used to water plants which would be an indirect recycling of water.
