The pact to tackle climate change woes were signed as Paris agreement by the international community but the climate change has already knocked on our doors . It made its presence felt in a big way world over .India is facing one of the hottest summers in 2016. One of its western states , Maharashtra is tackling one of the worst droughts . Water is being transported by trains from other states to one of its worst hit place , Latur .Major reservoirs are showing a 22% decline in their water capacity in India .
All in all situation is grim and dismal . But this is neither new nor one time . Our farmers have bore the brunt of it for a long long time and now rest of the country is facing the heat .
Then why do we always have to wait for the moment of epiphany . Why is it always fire fighting ?
Water conservation is the need of hour . PM , Shri Modiji addressed this issue on his talk show . Ban on indiscriminate use of water , such as car washing , judicious use in horticulture , fines on leaking taps and most importantly mandatory rain water harvesting in city and suburb limits
Otherwise action delayed would be results denied
