If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water. ~ Loren Eiseley
Sometimes it is the life giver whereas sometimes it can take lives.
Role of water as life giver:
Most of the early human civilisations settled in river banks where water was readily available for agriculture.
It quenched their thirst.
Moreover there’s a different planet to be found underneath the waters.
There’s life in the waters.
Role of water in taking lives:
Here I will recount a true episode of the Indian Ocean Earthquake and Tsunami, 2004.
The waters gushed in as I held my daughter tightly against my chest with one arm and with the other the pillar of the hotel. The next thing I know is the waters receded and my arms were empty.
It took away my daughter from me.
~~ A foreign tourist who was staying at a hotel in South India at that time.
I am in dearth of words to conclude this post.
I shall leave it up to you to come to a conclusion.
But before I sign off I want to say : “Water doesn’t always bring joy”.
Thank you for reading and have a great day ahead!
