Recently we are living in the world in which so called sapiens are busted with all possible kind of information. The water quality is of vital concern for mankind as it is related to human health, protection of the environment and sustainable development. Water an essential ingredient and it is present in polluted form in most of the countries in Asia. The deterioration in all aspects of surface and sub-surface water is one of the outcomes of increasing population. All issues related to water from water security to geopolitics, management of water resources to water policies and intervention in natural flow of water to produce hydro-power are governed by the human beings only. The proclamation of Albert Schweitzer in his words “Man has lost the capacity to foresee and to forestall. He will end by destroying the earth” indicates the direction in which this world is heading to. Yuval Noah Harari indicates that “the great discovery that launched the Scientific Revolution was the discovery that human do not know the answers to their most important questions”. Therefore, to save the earth, man needs to rediscover himself. In Anthropocene, all linear anthropogenic activities must be rechecked to find out the missing element to close the loop naturally. This era demands the entire generation to be wise enough to hold and carry the legacy of caring stewardship towards the earth instead of being the brutal exploiter. The time has come to dust-off the concept of defying the nature and begin harmonious relationship to acquire happiness all around in life.
