The world is a precious ball of dirt and water, and it looks as though more of us than ever are determined to undo hundreds of years of damage. This young Indian man is reviving dried out lakes to help the water crisis, and the internet has been quick to praise his actions.
A Growing Crisis
India is currently going through what is thought to be the worst water crisis in the history of the planet. Up to 21 cities could have run out of groundwater by the year 2020, and 200,000 Indians already lose their life every year thanks to no clean water. To top it off, up to 163 million living in the country have no access to clean water at all.
Educating The Population
Ramveer Tanwar is 26 years old and is determined to change the state of his country. The engineer noticed that many lakes were disappearing. He spent many years trying to educate people about their water usage as Ramveer noticed many were wasting water every day without ever realizing it. Sadly, it wasn’t enough. The lakes were still disappearing.
A Grand Clean
The engineer soon set about reviving all those lost lakes and bodies of water to help get fresh water back into villages across the nation. Ramveer set about assisting the locals in clearing out all the trash and debris before they could get the lakes filled back up with the water they needed – all while helping people to understand how they can conserve their water from now on.
Changing The Landscape
So far, Ramveer has helped to bring 12 lakes back to life since starting his project in 2014, and it looks as though his plans have helped to change the landscape. Once barren stretches of land are now filled with water and life once again. Thankfully, thousands of people from around the world have come forward to congratulate the engineer. It looks as though Ramveer’s message is rapidly reaching everyone across the planet.
Sometimes, it can take just one person with a grand plan to change the world. Sure, it might have sounded like a mammoth task, but it looks as though there’s no stopping Ramveer on his mission to bring India back from the edge of their water crisis once and for all.
