 Water is essential not only for human beings but also for animals.  Helping civilizations grow.  Water, one of the five elements, is the foundation of all civilizations in the world.  Water is considered and worshiped as ‘Mother’ in Indian culture.  Water is worshiped as ‘Ganga Mata’ during religious ceremonies, weddings, anniversaries, festivals, fairs and festivals. Even today there are traditionalists who don’t want to dip their footwears in water or enter water storage areas.  Drinking water is the first part of entertaining a guest at home.  The importance given to this by Indians is unforgettable.
      Considered to be the first civilization in the world, the Egyptian civilization was located on the banks of the Nile River.  The Indus Civilization developed on the banks of the Sindhu – Saraswati Rivers, the Mesopotamian Civilization on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, and the Chinese Civilization on the banks of the Hoyang Ho and Yang Siki Yang rivers.  The Inca Civilization Rivers provided shelter to the civilizations found on the shores of Lake Titicaca.
 Water is essential for drinking, daily life and especially for agriculture.  Man depended on rivers to meet his food needs.  That is why the river characters became his base.  Since then, the collective life that has taken the form of civilization has continued till now.
 This kind of behavior is also seen in birds, animals and all organisms that live in groups.  They make their habitats near rivers and ponds.  An example of that is West Bengal’s Sunderbun, Kaziranga, Gir, Jim Corbett, Nilgiris, Vandalur and hundreds of forests where animals are abundant.  Similarly, they live in Bandipur, Nagarhole, Dandeli, Anashi, Kudremukh forest areas of Karnataka.
   The amount of freshwater on Earth is low.  Although water makes up 70% of the Earth’s surface, fresh water accounts for only 2. 5% !  So it needs to be used systematically.  Some rivers are said to have disappeared.  It should be understood that it is such a terrible tragedy.  It is a mirror held up to man’s ignorance when he realizes how polluted some rivers are.  India’s holy river Ganges is getting polluted and is becoming unfit for drinking, there is no more tragedy than this.  Accordingly, many rivers are being polluted by industrial waste.
  The clean and beautiful river Vrishabhavati, which once flowed in Bangalore, is now the drain of the huge Bangalore city.  It is a conduit for chemical substances from industries, including domestic sewage.  The same government is going to teach about environmental pollution in textbooks. Analyzes cause and effect.  Remedial measures are limited to teaching, lectures and essays.  Can you tell this ?  “It didn’t come, it didn’t ring”!!!
( It is in Kannada proverb)
 Strategic areas are identified for the rivers for agriculture and large and medium dams are constructed.  Especially where there are valleys, it is customary to build between the hillocks which form a natural barrier on either side.  There is a practice of collecting water and draining it from time to time.  Multi-Purpose River Projects India’s history through Five Year Plans is an exciting one.  Apart from that, hydropower generation is also promising.  It has now passed a century.
      Rivers are of many forms and flow in different ways.  The Colorado River, which flows through the southwestern USA and Mexico, flows through the red rocks and ends in the Gulf of California.  It is the red river.  In India, the Kali river flows through the black stone ground and appears black.  The Hoyang Ho River in China flows through yellow soil and appears yellow.  Saraswati River, Shalmale in Karnataka is Gupta Gamini.(hidden stream)  Born somewhere, appear somewhere.  These are just a few examples. Many features of rivers.
  India is a unique land in the whole world.  In no other part of the world have rivers flowed as much as Brahmaputra, Ganges, Yamuna, Indus, Saraswati, Sarayu, Ravi, Jhelum, Kosi, Mahanadi, Narmada, Godavari, Kaveri, Krishna, Tapati, Tungabhadra, Kapila, Ghataprabha, Malaprabha, Bhima, Netravati. Sharavati, Hemavati, Souparnika, Vedavati, Aghanashini etc. can mention a thousand rivers nearby. Waterfalls, lakes, ponds are in abundance.
  Our people have sung beautiful, simple words on the shores of lakes, rivers and streams. His inexhaustible words are as captivating as the flowers.  Throughout his life, nothing else was given as much priority as water. Let’s think of the elders that some ascetics are living without food and they lived on drinking water for so many days.
   So let’s use water adequately and sparingly as needed.  If we all save drop by drop together, it will be a contribution to the next generation.  In rainy season, make absorption pits and try to increase the groundwater level.  Unnecessary wasting water should be avoided.  This is our prime responsibility.
