Due to lack of planning, exploration and utilization of it. Efforts are always on to find, Oil and Gas, Coal, Gold which is beneficial for parties (people) with vested interests ignoring the fact that WATER IS LIFE. We are proud to find few drops of water on the surface of Moon spending so many crores of rupees but so many poor and down trodden people of the society are running for normal water 'for all purposes'.
