It features some of the innovative technologies associated with water, and highlights what each of us can do to save this precious resource. The book also makes us ponder by asking some relevant questions. For instance, is it a good thing that India is among the top 10 bottled water consumers in the world? Or that according to UN estimates, India is on the list of 48 countries that will face water scarcity by 2025?
