My fascination for water started with the lines in my science text
book urging me to drink 8 to 13 glasses of water everyday. I follow
this naturally because I do get thirsty alot.
Fast forward to my under graduate years and it amazes me that we still
use the same 100 odd year old system to bring water from catchment
areas to meet requirements of the city. Innovation has worked only in
bringing water more efficiently in the old system.
Today, we face a water shortage. Would not people staying closer to
the water source claim ownership and sell water to her neighbours than
allow its citizens to die?
An analogy is supplying water to a colony on the Moon.
