Title: There Goes ‘The Elixir Of Life’…Water!
Authors: Agrawal, K.P.
Issue Date: Aug-2010
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract:  Extreme water scarcity in the country’s metro cities could be a reality sooner than expected. Delhi is a prime example. Communities, individuals, and industries will have to join hands with government agencies to ward off this not so distant possibility. Water is the greatest gift of nature. But, unfortunately, a gift that humans are squandering away. The world is fast heading towards a water crisis. Its shortage is likely to be so acute that the next world war may be fought on sharing of water resources among various countries. The tensions are all too visible even now. And at the local level even lives have been lost owing to quarrels on water sharing.
