Save Water Save Life [PDF]

Water is one of the prime elements responsible for life on earth, a human body consisting of 75 percent of it and two-thirds of the earth’s surface is covered by water. Water circulates through the land just as it does through the human body, transporting, dissolving and replenishing nutrients and organic matter while carrying away waste material. Further, in the body, it regulates the activities of fluids, tissues, cells, lymph, blood and glandular secretions.

Water is also used as religious symbol since antiquity, to express devotion and purity. Some cultures worship gods who were thought to live in and command the waters. Cities have been built by considering the location and availability of pure drinking water.
