I wonder why - 7

Thanneer thanneer

Its a well-known fact that Mallus use water lavishly. They bathe for hours, and use enormous water for washing. But sometimes it is irritating to see how insensible some of them are.

A guy I saw today was running the tap in full flow, even while combing his hair. This is absolutely ridiculous.

I wonder why, these people waste one of the most precious resources on Earth and that too in a city like Chennai. Is it ignorance, indifference or both?

Basically, Kerala is rich in water resource... If you enter into the state, u can find its wetness and greenish cool.. As there is no water scarcity, they wont have any care about spending water that much.. This continues even if they go out of their state.

Kerala's an amazing place. No wonder people call it God's own country.
Talking abt water being precious, just can't forget the days in Chennai 2 years back when water was more precious than gold. The sight of all those water tankers with people waiting in the queue to get water,boy,that still remains in my memories. Balaji, guess the guy needs to be reminded of those days.

Telling people that they are using up too much water only brings up confrontations. Sometimes, it is better to keep silent in frustration. This is not applicable only to people of a certain state but for anyone.
