Sad State of Water Affairs

Can we all agree on one thing?  As a collective populace of the world, can we get to a place where all of the world’s citizens get unfettered access to clean water and clean air?  Seeing that those are natural resources, it should not be a difficult task right?  Well think again.  These demonstrations of unrest and the public outcry in South of Iran over water issues are telling of the fact that water sufficiency is a difficult balance to achieve.  Around 40% of the country has been in drought conditions for past few years with December 2017 being the driest months in around 67 years.  The continued politicals struggles and investment in wars has not been helpful either.  My prayers with the families struggling for clean water.

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..
