Life on earth cannot be imagined without water. Water is essential not only for mankind but also for animals and plants. Water is the basis of all living beings. That's why it is said that "water is life". If we stop consuming water, then all the biochemical processes going on inside our body will stop completely due to lack of water. In ancient times no one would have thought that water would one day be sold in bottles. This is the reality of today's era and all this happened due to the lack of water on the earth and increasing demand. Today water scarcity has become a worldwide problem breaking the boundaries of countries and continents.

"Ground Water" Free Gift

Ground water is a very important natural resource. It is a free gift given by nature to the entire human race. Two-thirds of the surface is covered by water, but only two to three percent of it is usable. Today many countries of the world including India are facing the problem of water crisis. It is also worth mentioning here that at present India is home to 17% of the world's population. Although the water is very less. Presently ground water resources are being used for drinking, irrigation and industrial purposes, but due to rapid growth in population, urbanization, industrialization and agricultural activities, the pressure on ground water resources has increased.

At the same time, due to geological and anthropogenic activities, the concern of deterioration in the quality of ground water has also increased. In this direction, the central government has made rural sisters and daughters partners to test water. About 4.5 lakh women have been trained for water testing. At least 5 trained women are testing water in every village of the country today.

By 2030 the world may face a water crisis

The annual average rainfall in the country is close to 1160 mm. At the same time, a large area in the country is drought-prone, which is dependent on rainfall, which contributes about 44 percent of the food grain production. Along with this, 40 percent contributes to human and 60 percent animal husbandry. On the other hand, except the cities, 80 to 85 percent of the drinking water supply in the entire country is from underground water while 60 to 65 percent of the water is used in irrigation. It is clear from this that if this situation continues, then by 2030 the world may have to face water crisis. Most of the crops in our country are dependent on ground water. On the other hand, the ground water mafia wants to increase their earnings from the ground water but does not want to make any effort to save the ground water. Therefore, it is very important to take steps in this direction.

To say water is the most common liquid on earth but it is the most important. Water is a transparent and colorless chemical substance that is the main component of the fluids of Earth's currents, lakes and oceans and most living organisms. On Earth, 96.5% of the planet's water is in seas and oceans, with 1.7% in groundwater, with 1.7% in the form of glaciers and ice from Antarctica and Greenland. In other large water bodies a small fraction is found in the air which is around 0.001%. In vapor form, only 2.5% of the water present in the cloud is in the form of fresh water. Less than 0.3% of all freshwater is in rivers, lakes and the atmosphere. A small amount (0.003%) of freshwater on Earth is contained within biological bodies and manufactured products. The biggest concern is that the amount of water in the Earth's interior is continuously decreasing, on which it is the most dependent. Tubewells, stepwells, wells are drying up, so ground water conservation has become an essential and important component of our life support system today.

biggest step ever

It is not that this deepening crisis has not gone unnoticed. World Water Day has been celebrated every year on 22 March for water conservation. The importance of water can be gauged from the fact that the UN has celebrated the year 2013 as "World Water Year". On the other hand, there is also a problem that there are disputes between different states and countries regarding water. Realizing all these things, the Government of India has also taken many important steps in this direction and is now going to take the biggest step. In fact, recently PM Modi has appealed to all the state governments to start a big exercise to increase the ground water in the country.

75 Amrit Sarovar will be constructed in each district

PM Modi has given a call to build 75 Amrit Sarovars (ponds) in each district in the coming New Year (Pratipada). In this regard, PM Modi said, "We all can do one thing together. Let us resolve that from Pratipada this year to Pratipada next year, 75 Amrit Sarovar will be built in every district. If possible, this Amrit Sarovar in every district should be new, grown up.

Will help to increase ground water

It can be imagined that if this resolution taken by PM Modi is fulfilled, then the water crisis in the entire country will end and the life of our coming generations will also be safe. The water problem of the drought prone areas in the country will be solved. The water crisis spreading like cancer in areas like Bundelkhand can be ended. In the coming days, the benefit of which will be very beneficial for small farmers, women and even birds and animals. If 75 Amrit Sarovar will be constructed in each district in the country, then it will be of great help in increasing the ground water.

to all state shave to contribute

There are more than 700 districts in the country, in such a situation, you can imagine that if 75 Amrit Sarovar's will be built in each district of the country, then how much water can be collected on a large scale. PM Modi has called that if possible in every district, this Amrit Sarovar should be of new and bigger size so that excessive amount of water can be stored. Would like to tell that the Madhya Pradesh government has even started the work of making Amrit Sarovar in 75 districts. For this, the work of finding land has already started. If the water crisis in the country is to be eradicated, then all the states will have to contribute in it. PM Modi has also appealed to every state government, local bodies and panchayats to work in this direction.

Can use the amount of MNREGA

PM Modi has also suggested the use of MGNREGA amount for making 75 Amrit Sarovar in each district of the country. Construction of 75 Amrit Sarovar's in every district will be very useful for the coming generations. Our mother earth will also get a lot of benefit from this. Over the years, due to excessive exploitation of water from the earth, there has been a shortage of water in the earth. So the only way to solve this formidable problem is to build reservoirs.

monitoring is also necessary

Monitoring and implementation of national policies for increasing ground water is also necessary. The Central Ground Water Board (CGWB) is responsible for monitoring and implementing national policies to increase groundwater in the country. The Central Ground Water Board (CGWB) is a subordinate office of the Ministry of Water Resources, Government of India. This leading national agency has been entrusted with the responsibility of providing scientific support for the management, exploration, monitoring, assessment, augmentation and regulation of ground water resources of the country. In the year 1970, the Central Ground Water Board was established under the Ministry of Agriculture by renaming it as Exploratory Tubewell Organization. It was merged with the Ground Water Wing of the Geological Survey during the year 1972.

problem every year

Every year one or the other area in the country faces water problem during summer. If you remember in the year 2019, when the water problem was deep in Latur of Maharashtra, then in those days the work of transporting water through trains was done in Latur district. Apart from this, drinking water is also supplied by the central government through tankers in many areas of the country.

In line with PM Modi's 'No One is Left Out' philosophy, it has now become necessary to work while finding a solution to the problem of water across the country. The central government is moving in this direction. The Government of India has given priority to water administration in its policies and decisions. So in the last 6 years, many steps have been taken in this direction. Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana, Har Khet Ko Pani Abhiyan, Per Drop More Crop Campaign and Namami Gange Mission, Jal Jeevan Mission and Atal Bhujal Yojana are working in this direction in the country. But apart from the government, we have to do some work ourselves.

PM Modi had recently urged the audience through his 'Mann Ki Baat' program and said that "Let us repeat our resolutions again. Whatever we can do to save every drop of water, we must do that. Apart from this, we have to keep giving equal emphasis on recycling of water. The water used at home can be used in pots, can be used in gardening, it must be used again.

In the work of saving water, PM Modi has high hopes from the children. PM Modi says about this that "as our children made cleanliness a movement, in the same way they can help save water by becoming a 'Water Warrior'."

At the same time, many people in the country have made water conservation a life mission. In order to build check dams, rain water harvesting, individual efforts are important and Collective Efforts are also necessary. Therefore, every citizen of the country, understanding his responsibilities, has to make good use of water.
