Acute Shortage of Electricity and Water

Mostly by seeing impressive figures of growth people start believing that things are very fine in India and everything is only growing here. However, there are certain basic things which are actually going in the reverse direction like availability of electricity and fresh drinking water. Hardly, summer has knocked the doors of north India and people here have started witnessing long electricity cuts and shortage of drinking water.

Every year, our centre government and state government’s claims number of breakthrough in solving these two basic problems, however, next year situation only become even worse than the actual situation last year. At certain places, these situations have already started showing alarming signs with electricity and water not coming for even days. Problem of water is more alarming than the shortage of electricity because of the depleting ground water levels and ground water getting polluted due to industrial waste.

In some parts, ground water is no longer safe for drinking, however, due to non availability of other alternatives people are forced to drink this water only. Demand for water is increasing every year while natural resources which are providing water from many centuries are shrinking on the yearly basis. On certain summer days, people in northern India have to live without both water and electricity.

This is really a worry sign for the growing state like India and can cause big problems in the future if corrective measures are not taken soon to solve these problems. From educated people to conserving ground water, there are many options available with governments and people to decrease this problem considerably and make life of people easier.
