“We belong to Nepal”, world’s second richest country in water resources, but are you sure it’s true? I don’t think so. We live in the capital (Kathmandu) of Nepal but we can see water scarcity as we go through localities. Why do you think this is happening? It is because we are not saving water. It doesn’t mean that if we are the second richest country in water resources, we shouldn’t save water, only because we have plenty of it. So here are the tips
“How to save water”. Read and follow them.
