India is facing an unprecedented water crisis, with over 42% of the country reeling under acute drought and over 21 cities to run out of ground water by 2020. With over 80 water bodies completely contaminated or extinct, with almost all lakes of Bangalore either dead or frothing, Yamuna water only fit for industrial cooling, it’s high time we wake up. There is also the question of inequity, of transfer of natural resources (especially water) from the poor to the rich and rural to urban.
