Water Poisoning

I was in Kerala some few years ago visiting my grandmothers place.The Small house was built up right in between thick dense evergreen forests...The fellow villagers were very thin , healthy and Good Climbers.It was heaven to see the sky blue as a sea , tall trees and bushes surrounding you everywhere..At times I sighed thinking " if had a Bunglow or an apartment at this place"..the food came right from the farm, Milk from Cowshed and during fests the Chicken Curry was awesome.The only problem was of night as there was not much of a space we used to sleep on the verandah where the ful moon was completly visible and there was a threat of being eaten by wild animals..but luckily only the mosquitos were our prime concern.

The main thing i observed amongst those villagers was Water Management.The Water came right from the Well they have just dugged out.This was the only main source where Water was distributed to the farms, bathroom and the house and they where very cautious about the water.

Few days later they installed water pumps and water was being distributed in a much faster rate saving time..But the water still was being used cautiously...When i came back to Mumbai to my surprise water was not running through the taps.Later on investigating I came to know that is the story for most of the Mumbaikars.."Water Shortage " has gripped the city..

I really dont understand why petrols and Gold cost such a fortune while water is the most essential commodity to survive.

News Channels : Water pumps have been destroyed by the slum dwellers.Some peoples are selling waters in black via tankers etc..after few months the problem was resolved by constantly cutting water supplies in Morning till afternoon...But now came news about Chlorinated Water...

Yellow water were being poured out due to excess use of Chlorine

Because of this:

900,000 people each year become ill - and possibly 900 die
Risk about suffering from Cancer exists

Chlorine has so many dangers it should be banned. Putting chlorine in the water supply is like starting a time bomb. Cancer, heart trouble, premature senility, both mental and physical, are conditions attributable to chlorine treated water supplies. It is making us grow old before our time by producing symptoms of aging such as hardening of the arteries

I still dont understand why cant anybody create a Module for using Sea Water , filtering it and making it available to the people..resolving water shortage issue.

India has prospersed with respect to its technological and Chemical fields.All the private sectors are busy filling up their pockets.Only if they can look into this issue will really change the perspective of the whole new Society and make this a better place to live in.
