Elixir of Life

This is our world (urban and 'civilized')- Amazing ads have blown our television sets. Ads about this, ads about that. Ads about everything. Every ad fail to bother me much; yet from Hema Malini to Shilpa Shetty- I get confused which R.O purifier is the best for us. Which would save maximum energy and waste minimum water during purification. Their dresses always matches the color of R.O's against which they stand. The words they use- Flourine, Arsenic, et cetera and of course their 'challenges with price money' make people go alert. We have given up boiling water and also matka pani. It all has to be scientifically pure and  potent. After all, its the one of the paanch tatvas which our body is made out of.

In a parallel world; somewhat in a different dimension exists another world which is rural and 'uncivilized'- There's no Shilpa Shetty or Hema Malini to save them from dirty water. The water with which they have bath is the same water they drink. The water they use in washrooms is the water they use for cooking. All with same formula- H2O and with same toxic elements. Gives a disgusting look on our faces, right? I imagine a kid, about to turn 5 years in coming weeks or so, lying on bed. No, no, not sleeping. He's probably suffering from the disease which almost all boys and girls suffer from nowadays in his village. Such are remote villages in Rajasthan and Gujarat. Same goes for Africa. Why can't Miss Shetty or Miss Malini fly in here and save the people? Because it doesn't work this way. It is far off (not distance-wise) from our imagination and care.
Follow these pictures:

While you are reading this, five more kids are on bed due to water borne diseases. And then in our world- this is us, follow up:

Such is life. Water is a natural resource. Above that, we 'need' it for survival. And dont we all deserve clean water to drink? That goes out to people living in parallel dimension as well.
Donate money, if possible at- Water project or Clean Water or even better, join this cause your self.
If not possible, at least don't waste water. 
Protect it. Respect it. Save it.
