Nallamada, Andhra Pradesh
Suguna was reading her
book, when she heard
someone at the door. She
saw that there was a visitor
from the city. Appa
welcomed the guest. He
told Selva to bring a cold
drink for him. The guest
said, “I do not take cold drinks. I will just have a glass of water.”
Appa said, “These
days we are not getting
water that is fit for
drinking. It does not
even look clean. It
would be better if you
do not drink this water .
We do not have a
choice, so we drink it.”

Bazaar Gaon, Maharashtra
There was a big
water park near
Bazaar Gaon. One
day Rohan and
Reena went with
their parents to the
water park. There
were many water-
fountains. Reena
said, “Look Rohan,
there are so many rides in the water.” “And look at all these big
ponds,” Rohan said. Splash! Splash! Splash! Both turned around.
They saw a long thick water hose going zoom, zoom, zoom.

Children were sliding down a
big tall slide and landing in water
with a loud splash. Rohan got
into a swing high above –
whoosh!, Within a second, he
had landed in the water. Reena
gave a shriek of surprise!
Just then they heard a lot of
noise and loud voices from outside
the park. Everyone ran towards the
main gate. There was a crowd of
people, carrying empty buckets and pots. A small child carrying
an empty bottle was clinging to his mother. Rohan’s mother went
to one of the women in the crowd. “What is the matter?” She
asked.
The woman replied angrily,
“You ask what is the matter?
Our wells have no water. We
get our water only when the
tanker comes once a week.
Today, even that has not
come. And here, there is so
much water everywhere – just
for you all to play and enjoy. Tell me, what should we do?”

Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Have you ever faced a shortage of water in your house? When?

 floor. Deepak
loves going in the lift. Today was a holiday
in school. Deepak had gone with his mother
to Raziya Madam’s house. His mother
worked there. The house was quiet and cool,
and shining clean. Raziya was reading a
newspaper. She smiled when she saw
Deepak. “Is it a holiday today?” she asked.
She switched on the TV and Deepak was
soon lost in the world of cartoons.
Raziya called out, “Pushpa, it says in the newspaper that
the gutter water has got mixed with the water in the drinking
water pipes, in this area. It says that many people are sick

with diarrhoea and
vomiting because of this.
Why don’t you throw away
the water that was filled
yesterday? Put some fresh
water to boil, for drinking.
Also take home some
boiled water for your
family.” Deepak was happy
to hear this. He thought, “At least today I will not have to stand
in a queue for hours to get water for our house. It is a real
holiday for me!”
Write in your notebook
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Why was Raziya worried when she read the newspaper?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Raziya asked that all the water that was filled the previous
day should be thrown. Could this water have been used for
something else? What kind of things?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö In what way did she plan to clean the water?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Do you know of different ways to clean the water? Describe
them.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Suppose, Raziya had not read the news and everyone had drunk
the water without boiling it, what could have happened?
Discuss
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Where Deepak lives, everyone has to stand in a queue to fill
water from the common public tap. In Raziya’s house, water
comes all day in the tap. Why is this?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Raziya read news about the water in the newspaper. Have
you read any news about water in the newspapers? What
kind of news?
