Do you know why I want to talk about water in this issue of Gobar
Times? Because I got tired of grumbling about it. Yes. Everytime I think of water, I frown
and I mutter and my blood pressure shoots up. I am reminded of the looong wait for the
trickle from the municipal supply pipeline to appear; the bitter haggling with the rude
guy who supplies water tankers for a hefty sum of money
I decided to find out who is responsible for all this mess. As a law abiding Indian
citizen, isnt it my right to receive my share of water?
First, of course, I put the government on the dock...I pay my taxes and
my bills, and the government is responsible for giving me as much water as I
right? Then I paused a moment. I thought of all the local politicians who hold
meetings in our street corner before every election. They talk about how worried they are
about the water crisis and how they plan to solve it once they come to power.
And, of course, nothing ever changes.
It became absolutely clear to me that they know there is a
problem but they have no idea how to solve it. It was then that I decided not to
waste my time complaining anymore. I need to find my own solution
all of us do.
No, I have not found a way out yet. But I have begun the process, and
now I will tell you about it. But I need your help to win my right on my water
yours. Are you with me?
