Water is the miracle in nature. It generates itself through a natural cycle & cultivates, cleans, & helps all of us to survive. This universe or globe cannot exist without water. Nature proposes & man
disposes. Has the man fulfilled his responsibility towards water? Yes
being the living creatures, we all have right on water. But what about

will come soon where there will be World War over water. The globe
will be warmed but human beings will become cold blooded to kill each
other for survival, putting an end to civilization & humanity.
