Abstract: About 4 000 m3 of rain water is received in a year through water cycle on Indian sub-continent. It means, due to the various natural processes such as heating of sea water, formation of vapours of that water, conveyance of those vapours in the form of clouds through wind energy, in the every corner of India, and the rainfall of pure water on Indian sub-continent through the condensation from the peaks of Himalaya to the sea shores; obviously, nature utilizes its energy in all these processes. Can we not recycle this energy for the growth of mankind through water management? A special energy is available in the rainwater available at different elevations, even if it is in the form of glaciers, due to its elevations; which is due to the mathematical facts of physical sciences (PE = mgh). We can utilize that energy for connecting regions having abundant water resources with those having acute shortage of water. Favourable elevations existing naturally on the Indian sub-continent can prove to be very useful for this scheme where the everlasting source of water is extensively available at the elevations of 8 000 m over the highest peaks of Himalaya, and this source of water flows over the Indian land after its melting at slow speed. On the other hand, there is a falling gradient towards the southern part of India. Can we not interlink these regions by any means? This Himsagar (Everlasting source of water) can prove to be an unending Brahmasagar (perennial source of water). If it happens, we would be the most fortunate, and this concept for the management of water could become an ideal example for any of the biggest continents.
