Latur water crisis: our eyes will open or not?

Sumeet Dixit.

Water is the most essential material for human survival, after air. Without water, life as we know it would not be possible. Yet, these days, clean drinking water is a scarce resource in many parts of the world, including India. Recently, I came across a video where a man was shown purchasing water for money, and with the passing time the amount to be spent continues increasing and amount of water he gets in return decrease. Eventually a time comes when the man offers all his money to the vendor, but could not get even a single drop in return due to increasing scarcity of water. It seems impertinent to some people at some places. It looks that such scarcity will never occur. But recent events in Maharashtra, Latur to be more specific are real eye opener. The situation in the Latur city is alarming to say the least. Everyday thousands of people queue up in front of public hydrants leading to fights. But for the imposition of Section 144 of the IPC preventing large gatherings, there could have been riots.
