Dear Jal Rakshaks

Many thanks for your kind interest in becoming an environment saviour. As we all know the groundwater crisis is becoming worse every day. We blame everyone else but ourselves for the same. The time has come for each of us to take the initiative and start work to arrest the fall in groundwater levels across the country.

This monsoon month, let us plant indigenous trees in our localities which would help clean the air, bring rain, and eventually recharge the groundwater. Under this “plantation drive” offered by FORCE, you not only make your areas green by planting trees but also get recognised with some rewards!

Under this offer we invite Jal Rakshak & Water Guardian Clubs (JR&WG Clubs), RWAs and individuals to plant 50 or more trees in their localities. For this greening, we will award 20 water carats (1 Water carat is equivalent to 10,000 Litres of water saved, which is equivalent to 3 mature tree) as well as a prize money of Rs 5000 to the first 10 participants.

Hurry up! As Water saviours, let us lock each drop of rainwater in the root of native tree species and improve the ground water quality and Water table.

Pro Or Against Water

WaterIn a recent Workshop, a comment by one of my friends in the developmental sector said something that got me thinking.  We were talking about a civil society advocacy group for Water. She asked me whether I wanted to be part of that group. I immediately said “Yes – any group that cares for Water is a group I’d like to be part of.” Then I asked her who the other members were. She reeled off some names. I was familiar with them and so, without thinking, I said, “ Oh- the Anti-Privatization group?’ She looked at me speculatively and replied, “ Yes…though we too are part of it.” Then more suspiciously, she asked ” Are you pro-privatization or Against?”
