The water problem

A Google search for “world water shortage” will produce more than four million results in 0.17 seconds. It will also use a tenth of a teaspoon of water, experts say. Given water's role in power generation, the impact of about 300 million Google searches a day is around 150,000 litres (40,000 gallons) daily -- in a world where water supplies are increasingly a major concern. -Photos by AFP

water shortage is becoming a serious problem now a days as i belong to Pakistan....and i m a true patriot....so,,sorry if something hurts you......the coming lines is just for awareness of my Pakistani brothers and sisters.... the report of Pakistan Water Council has states that our neighbouring country will complete 40 dams on river Jehlum and Chenab in 2015. Out of which 4 large and 16 small dams have become operational. Also a water tunnel is now working and taking 45% of water of river Sindh....!!! if this situation goes on likewise....Pakistan will turn into a desert..This is a Water war...!!! Lets play our role to save our country by taking effective steps to reduce water shortage. save water save your children's future..
