Save Water

Udaipur -> Today’s ‘Venice’ or tomorrow’s ‘Sahara’ ….?

The hour demands immediate concern towards water conservation. If we do not take appropriate steps than soon the ‘Lake City’ won’t be anything else than ‘Sand City’

Water Harvesting system is nothing new to Indian agriculture. Specially in Rajasthan, a chronic drought prone area, practice of roof-top rain water harvesting techniques and water collection methods for drinking purpose is centuries old.

What is Rain Water Harvesting?

It simply means collection and storage of rainwater by some mechanism to make water available for future use. A large amount of precipitation, which is generally lost as surface flow can be harvested and stored for useful purposes.

There are several rain water harvesting techniques, but the technique of roof top rain water harvesting can be easily adopted. We exploit the underground water throughout the year than why can’t we donate a part of it to the ground again. All we need is 4 months .

Rain Water Harvest Plant:
The water reaching the Roof through precipitation is allowed to flow down by an exhaust pipe which can be connected to a filter which further empties itself into the tube wells.

As a result of this small method we can recharge the groundwater and prevent the underground water table from further deterioration.

Estimation :
According to a calculation

If 1cm of rainfall occurs over a roof of 1000 sq feet then about 1000 litre of water may be collected, i.e. if rainfall is of 40 inches ( approx 100 cm)  than a million litre of pure water will be collected.


The purification of groundwater will continue to be beneficial to health.

Electricity costs will decrease and the amount of ground water will increase.

This Will improve the quality of groundwater .

Excess water wouldn’t flow on the streets.

Tilak Holi

UdaipurBlog - Tilak Holi

The Days Have went away when we used to fill the overhead tanks with colors and enjoyed seeing colors flowing from through Taps at Their Home.

The Days Have Passed when we used to throw Water Balloons at Anyone Going Outside our Home.

The Days Have Passed Today we Are facing a Lot of Water Shortage In Our So called City Of Lakes – Udaipur. The Lakes Have dried up ‘We are Running Short of Water’.

Can we imagine now to waste gallons of Water to Play Holi? Wont we be called Criminals.

Traditions Changes , Culture Changes, Friends Changes – Cant We Change This Time?? Why cant we all stand together , and put a firm foot forward and oppose Wet HOLI CELEBRATIONS. In Times When Our Lakes Have dried Up and Have converted to Muddy Pits. The time When We are Facing Water Shortage. Why cant We celebrate this Holi in a Whole new Way as we Never Did Before.

But getting ready to Play ‘Dry Holi’ is not confining ourself to Play with ‘Gulal’ Throwing it on others.   It is to leave all those Practices and move to a bit more practical Means – That is Adopting the Measure to Play ‘Dry Holi’.

No doubt we can save a lot of water playing dry Holi; but what about the clothes we would spoil with colors;  wont we waste so much water trying to rinse them? It was like, doing all the hard work to get to the top, and then jumping off the very last step!

This time the things are even worse we cant even Manage to Play ‘Dry Holi’. Let us this time celebrate – ‘Tilak Holi’ – Let us greet all our friends, families with colored ‘Tilak’ . Let Us all Be a responsible Citizens and Show the World – ‘WE CARE’
