Drinking Water


Dhaka, Bangladesh: As my car was waiting in a Jam near Shahbag crossing, I have seen that, these three children were taking drinking water in plastic containers, from a sewerage pipeline. It was a wonder, that the wall, in front of the girls, is the wall of WASA (water supply)? That means the water inside the boundary-is purified and only for those, who are able to pay. And the water, outside of the wall/boundary is the not purified, free to take and contaminated sewerage water, is for those, who cannot pay! Do we need a new slogan in the Globalised world: Drinking Water for All?
