Water – Short Essay 2.
Meaning of water
Water is a basic necessity for all life forms. Without water most life forms will cease to exist. Around eighty percent of human body is made up of water and so it very essential for its existence. The healthy functioning of human body requires it to be regularly and sufficiently hydrated. Apart from that water is also needed to keep oneself and one’s things clean.
At this juncture humanity has come to a crossroad because of careless use of resources. The available water supply has been consistently going down. The river and other sources of water are being contaminated by factories and human civilization leaving the water unfit for use.
When the available water was found to be insufficient the debate about the careful use and conservation of water started establishing once again the importance of water in human life.
Water being an important ingredient needed to sustain life, even human life, we must recognise its importance and do our very best to protect all sources of water. Apart from that it is our duty to conserve whatever water is available to us. We must make sure that we not only not use up the available reserves but try to create conditions for the better replenishment of water sources.
