Thirst quencher

A glass of pure water, costlier than a glass of milk, makes a refreshing drink during summer.

WHO WOULD have thought that water would become such a precious commodity? From being a resource that was freely available every time a tap was opened, drinking water has become so scarce that seasoned travellers always include a water bottle as part of their luggage.

No longer is anyone ready to trust the water that is available outside home. Health awareness about drinking water is quite high, both in urban and rural areas.

Stores selling home appliances find that electronic devices that use modern methods to purify water are always in demand. For, when the temperature shoots up, there is nothing that offers as much satisfaction and invigoration as a few sips of clear, cool water.
