Kumari Selja Inaugurates the Exhibition ‘Water - a Precious Resource

INVC,, Delhi,, An interactive science exhibition delving into the Fresh Water Crisis began here today on the World Water Day in the National Science Centre, Delhi. The exhibition ‘Water - a Precious Resource’ was inaugurated by Kumari Selja, Minister for Culture and Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation in presence of Dr. Krishan Lal, President, Indian National Science Academy (INSA) and Chairperson, Research Advisory Board, National Council of Science Museums (NCSM). Speaking on the occasion, Kumari Selja emphasized the importance of water conservation, its judicious use and proper management if the Earth is to be rendered livable for future generations. She asked the young audience to become messengers and communicators to create consciousness and awareness on the water crisis that is looming large on the planet earth. The exhibition attempts to raise consciousness about the world wide crisis of this precious resource that affects billions of people around the globe. Today, scarcity of water is the most excruciating problem in the face of the earth after global warming. The exhibition demonstrates that even low-tech water conservation methods and some conscious readjustments in our daily water usage patterns could be viable alternatives that may potentially stop us from running our taps dry. This exhibition is de-facto a plea on behalf of the planet earth and presents a manifesto of what needs to be done to save the planet from ensuing water crisis. The Exhibition – Water: a Precious Resource – will stay in Delhi for two months for public viewing and then, in next two years, it is scheduled to travel across India through the circuit of 25 science centres developed and managed by the National Council of Science Museums, the science communication organization, functioning under the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. Several activities, lectures etc. shall be organized at each site to create awareness.
