What is Chinese for “Double Edged Sword?”

Read on this story about water issues in China and this is going to be the story of every town and every city and every country in the near future.  Too much water where you don’t need it, not enough water where you do need it and whole lot of water quality issues.  Text book case for the future that awaits all water planners like me. Good thing, people like me love such puzzles to solve.

The positive thing is that the problem is solvable.  It takes some out of box strategic thinking and visioning, whole lot of initiative on the part of the ruling parties, a whole lot of collaboration, and a tonne of crisp green bills… but it can be solved.

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..
