INDIAN SAINTS SECURED CLIMATIC AND NATURAL BALANCE THROUGH INDIVIDUAL WATER HARVESTING REINVENTED BY GURU NANAK THE FIRST GURU OF SIKHS


Description

Summary

HUMAN BODY IS REPLICA OF THE EARTH AND ITS ATMOSPHERE.AS OUR BODIES ARE 70% WATER AND OUR INTAKE AND OUTLET OF WATER DOES NOT GO BEYOND 1% IN A HEALTHY BODY. BASED ON THE SAME PRINCIPLE INDIAN SAINTS CREATED AN AGE OLD TRADITION SO THAT THE QUANTUM OF WATER ON EARTH SURFACE AS WELL AS SUBSOIL IS NOT ABUSED. THEY WANTED EVERY ABLE BODIED PERSON TO OBSERVE THE PRACTICE OF RETURNING TO MOTHER EARTH A HANDFUL FROM THEIR SHARE OF THE DRINKING WATER EVERY TIME THEY CONSUMED WATER WITH THE AFFIRMATION THAT THE LAND AROUND HIM REMAINS GREEN, FERTILE, FREE FROM DROUGHT, FLOODS OR BLIZZARDS. 

GURU NANAK THE FIRST GURU OF SIKHS RE-INVENTED THAT TRADITION WITHOUT CHALLENGING THE MYTH AROUND OFFERING WATER TO THE RISING SUN EVERY MORNING. GURU NANAK ASSERTED THAT THE TRADITION OF OFFERING WATER WAS BASICALLY MADE TO RETURN A HANDFUL FROM YOUR SHARE OF THE DRINKING WATER TO MOTHER EARTH SO THAT ITS ABUNDANCE REMAINS IN TACT. GURU NANAK WAS BORN IN THE FIFTEENTH CENTURY.

SINCE LAST 150 YEARS OR SO WE HAVE CREATED A HUGE INSTALLED CAPACITY OF OVER GROUND WATER FILLED IN BOTTLES AS MINERAL WATER, SPARKLING WATER, BEERS, WINES AND SOFT DRINKS. THE COMPANIES MAKING THESE PRODUCTS LARGELY DO RAIN HARVESTING OR SUCK WATER FROM SPRINGS, CANALS, RIVERS AND EVEN FROM SUBSOIL WATER RESOURCES. THE RESULT HAS BEEN THAT EVEN MIGHTY RIVERS LIKE GANGES WHICH INDIANS CONSIDER HOLY HAS LOST ITS POWER TO CLEAN ITSELF.  EVEN THE VICTORIA FALLS HAVE LOST THEIR THUNDER. WE LIVE IN A MAKE BELIEVE WORLD SUPPORTED BY NATURE'S ABUNDANT AND FREE RESOURCES. WHATEVER WE SINCERELY AND WHOLE-HEARTEDLY AFFIRM STARTS HAPPENING. 

MUMBAI CITY AT SEA LEVEL GULPS DOWN ALL THE WATER AND THERE IS ACUTE DROUGHT IN THE UPPER REGION OF MARATHWADA.TO AVOID THAT SITUATION THE ONLY WAY IS TO ADOPT INDIVIDUAL WATER HARVESTING AS A RELIGION. IF OUT OF 22 MILLION PEOPLE OF MUMBAI ONLY HALF OF THEM DAILY RETURN TO MOTHER EARTH 100 ML FROM THEIR SHARE OF DRINKING WATER ONE MILLION LITERS OF POTABLE WATER WILL GET BACK INTO SUBSOIL.


What actions do you propose?

ALL SOFT DRINK AND WATER BOTTLING PLANTS AND COMPANIES SHOULD LAUNCH A GLOBAL CAMPAIGN TO HOLD PUBLIC GATHERINGS TO CAUSE AWARENESS ON THIS VITAL ISSUE. 


Who will take these actions?

WATER BOTTLING PLANTS, SOFT DRINK MAKERS, BEER AND WINE MAKERS.


Where will these actions be taken?

AROUND THE WORLD AS WATER IS BECOMING AN ISSUE AFFECTING EVERY NATION AND ITS ENVIRONMENT.


How will these actions have a high impact in addressing climate change?

WATER IS LIKE THE PRESIDING DEITY ON EARTH COVERING 70 PERCENT OF ITS SURFACE.  ONCE WATER'S BALANCE GETS MAINTAINED TO ITS ORIGINAL LEVEL, ALL POLLUTION CAUSED BY WHATEVER HUMAN ACTIVITY, WILL COME UNDER CONTROL. THE EARTH WILL COOL DOWN, GLACIERS WILL STOP MELTING THAT RAISES SEA LEVELS AND NATURE WOULD NOT FEEL THE NEED TO COME DOWN WITH A WRATH OF THUNDER AND GAIL STORMS.


What are other key benefits?

ONCE THE ENTIRE HUMANS ON EARTH JOIN HANDS TO RE-CREATE THE NATURAL BALANCE OF WATER ON EARTH, THE ENTIRE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES WILL COME UNDER CONTROL. SUMMITS AND MEETINGS ARE JUST A WASTE OF MONEY. THE SOLUTION IS AS SIMPLE AS OUR LIVES BUT WE HAVE TO SHARE THE BURDEN BY JUST ADOPTING THE AGE OLD TRADITION.


What are the proposal’s costs?

ALL GIANTS LIKE COCA COLA AND PEPSI WHO MAKE BILLIONS FROM USE OR ABUSE OF WATER CAN CERTAINLY AFFORD THE COST TO LAUNCH SUCH A CAMPAIGN.  THEY CAN TAG A TINY BOTTLE OF DRINKING WATER TO EVERY BOTTLE OF SOFT DRINK,BEER,WINE WHICH ARE WATER BASED, JUST FOR THE ACTION TO RETURN THE WATER TO MOTHER EARTH. IT MAY SOUND MAD BUT IT IS NOT IMPRACTICABLE.

 


Time line

IT CAN SHOW RESULT IN THE COMING SEASON AND IF HUMANS UNDERSTAND ITS IMPORTANCE IT CAN TAKE THE EARTH'S LIFE TO ITS ETERNITY.
