Water

Years of bad planning, corruption and inefficiency have reduced Delhi towards becoming a water deficient state. The rich have plumbed more water than they need while the poor have barely enough for their basic needs. This must end. There is plenty of water for all and I recognize the need for better distribution and plugging of all leaks in the delivery system. To me, the chief culprit is environmental degradation. This must be tackled holistically. And everything begins with the right education. Each family must be empowered with information on how to save water for its own future needs. The monitoring of water management must be transparent and scientific. Water harvesting and recycling must become so common that Delhi should stand out as an example of a city that solved its own water problem.
