“We Don’t Govern Water, Water Governs Us!!”

If you live on this blue rock and you haven’t heard about Capetown in the recent past, then you need to get out of that couch and say hello to the world around you and of course connect to the 21st century via wifi.  There are so many lessons to be learnt from the water shortages manifested in Capetown and the water community will be recounting those stories in the coming years.  I thought this article captures the human aspect of dealing with the drought really well.  It is amazing what humans are capable of doing when they are put in troubled situations.  If there is nothing hopeful to takeaway from the drought in Capetown, we can at least walk away with this positive message.  Read on.

I distinctly remember the fluids mechanics homework i was working on many many years ago and i thought to myself... "shit... i get this ... water stuff..". Like the right buttons get pushed in my brain and this "flow" business actually makes sense to me. That was the origin of the love story and it's been going strong through all these years. I have been called many things, "Water Chick", "Aqua Girl" etc.. but I settled for "Ganges" as my screen name... I believe it serves the purpose of what i am trying to do here beautifully. I hope to make this place my "Mecca" for all things water. A place where people like me with no other agenda but pure love for water can come and hang out with a cuppa.... water.. lol.... fine... beer, coffee, wine, vodka, what have you!! Knowledge does not need to take itself too seriously... hopefully we will pick up a thing or two while we are traipsing along and stumbling away... that is the plan... we shall see..
