Water tankers being hijacked in Bangalore!

Water tankers being hijacked in Bangalore!


Do not be surprised if you read / hear this as headlines in your news.

Save Water Save Bangalore

Many citizens of Bangalore have not felt the heat of water crisis looming large in the next one or two months. No exaggeration. The water available in Cauvery river and the KRS dam is at its lowest in decades! Most of the borewells / tubewells have gone dry or are yielding very low water. 
New borewells are being drilled day in and day out, touching unheard of depths - 1000 feet and more.
However, we still see each day on the streets of Bangalore - 
Cars are being washed with hose pipes.
House fronts and roads being sprayed with water in buckets and hose pipes.
Overhead water tanks and underground sumps overflow with none paying heed. 
Are we blind to these acts?
Can we take the first step to stop these? 
Do we not have the social responsibility to save whatsoever available water, to conserve and share equitably among all sections of our society?

If not, WATER EMERGENCY may have to be declared???

Save Water Save Bangalore
