The news of Latur’s water crisis in Maharastra has compelled the nation’s youth to think of the situation and take effective measures to save water for the coming times. In a scenario where a majority of places in the country are facing some or the other form of water scarcity, youth are coming forward to save water as well as to encourage other people to do the same.
We are talking about the two youngsters, Sitanshu Nirvana from Jaipur and Shrikant Gaur from Delhi, who have set on a cycle journey to aware people about saving water and to raise funds for Latur’s water crisis. Their 1400km cycle journey has started from Delhi’s India Gate and it will end at the Gateway of India in Mumbai.
This Monday the two youngsters reached Jaipur. Shrikant says that the news of rising water crisis shook him from inside. They first thought of donating some funds for the people of Latur but then, they decided to involve people and convince them to save water in all possible ways. However, they started their saving water venture at home by using less water for daily chores, re-using RO’s and AC’s water, etc. And then, they thought of letting people know about how they can do the same.
To spread this message to the nation’s citizens, both of them organized this trip. They met a lot of people while travelling from Delhi to Jaipur, who also promised them to save water. The youngster will set off to Kishangarh on Tuesday, from where they will further proceed to cities like Chittorgarh, Udaipur, Ahmedabad, Badodara and Mumbai.
