It calls for an immediate introspection by all of us, to totally avoid wasting water.
<p>Washing our cars and two wheelers, sometimes after every few days has become a norm for many. We are selling more than 3 million cars per annum (we rank as the world's 5th in production) and the car population in India is estimated at 60-70 million. Even if 10 % of these are washed every third or fourth day, the statistics will be alarming, as each car needs a minimum of 30-40 litres or more of water for one single wash.</p>
<p>There are other classes of automobiles like three wheelers, trucks, buses and the like, that also are estimated to be in millions. </p>
<p>Alternative devices to dry clean cars like good, branded dusters, soft cloth and the like need to be preferred rather than frequent, avoidable washing, with the sole aim to conserve water. We as teambhpians always lead be it road safety, road manners, car upkeep and in many other arenas. Hence, it was thought that we can make a good beginning by spreading awareness here, not to waste water.</p>
<p>Foresight and action are needed or else our ex_ PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s famous quip &quot;the third world war will be for water&quot; may turn out to be factual. </p>
