Water Conservation

I am now in class 8th. We have stapig_final_blue_05-7-09littlerted reading about water conservation an our social science subject. Water conservation is going on becoming a subject of public interest in the today’s world.

Water is very important content. With out water there is no life in earth. We use water in so many ways in our daily life.Water is needed for growing food, keeping ourselves clean, generating power, controlling fire and most importantly to stay alive! This list is simply non-ending. This shows that water is an integral part of our daily life and we are heavily dependent on it. 

Water conservation by its name can be easily identify what it means. It is just giving our part in saving our precious resource water for future use.

When we say about water conservation, a question simply crreps into one’s mind that what is the actual need of saving water? There is so much water present on the earth?                                                                                                                                            The simple answer to this question is that fresh, clean water is a limited resource. Most of the planet is covered in water, it is salt water that can only be consumed by humans and other species after undergoing desalination, which is an expensive process. Therefore there is the need to save it!

THE ACTUAL CRISIS

  • 97 % of the Earth’s water is salt water.
  •  The percentage of the world’s total water is available to drink is less than 1 %.

 

For global attention to this important topic of water conservation, United Nations General Assembly decided in 1993 that a day should be made of water conservation and it was decided that it would be held on 22nd of March every year. So we should also save water. Given below are some of the major tips about water conservation.

  • Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6 litres of water per minute.
  • Take a shorter shower. Shower can use anything between 6 and 45 litres per minute.
  • Always use full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher – this cuts out unnecessary washes in between.
  • Fix a dripping tap. A dripping tap can waste 15 litres of water a day, or 5,500 litres of water a year.
  • Water your garden with a watering can rather than a hosepipe. A hosepipe uses 1,000 litres of water an hour.
  • Always try to buy water-efficient goods when you need to replace household products. You can now buy water-efficient showerheads, taps, toilets, washing machines, dishwashers and many other water-saving products.
  • Avoid long showers.

As we all know that small differences can make great changes. So let’s do our part to save life on earth!!

My Transfer Case

Everybody knows that there comes changes in life time an again. There is no one in this beatiful world that has not seen changes in his or her life. Likewise there also came a turn in my life too. My father got a transfer to Delhi from Varanasi, The City Of Ghats.

I was feeling very dissapointed when father came and broke the news of his transfer. It was a very sad oment for me. All the happy moments that I spent with my best friends came flasing infront of my eyes. It is a usual process that if anyne is getting parted with its one of the most favourite thing, he fells very distreesed. I was also at the same position at that time.

When we begin things, not always there are all things good. I also started thinking about the drawbacks of this dcision. I was then comforted by my enthusiastei sister Navya, who was seeming pleased with this decision.

Things began to change in my mind as I started thinking about the positive sides of this decision. I thoght that it must be intereseting about having new friends, new school and new teachers.

I have also became excited now and lets see that how much time it requires for me to set up perfectly in the culture of Delhi, the capital of India.
