This Holi - Save Water

Experts say that World War 3 is going to be about Water. The world population is growing at 1.2% every year. We added 66 million people to earth in 2008 stretching earth’s already limited and dwindling resources.

I know that I might be considered a grouch for suggesting this, but this year why don’t we change the rules. Let’s play Holi with dry colors in 2009 and eventually making it a tradition. Holi was originally the festival of colors and water has been added artificially to it. If we can avoid this water wastage, I think we should go for it.
Let’s enjoy the festival but at the same time help the world conserve water.

Can't agree more. Let's celebrate a totally water-less Holi, with eco-friendly colors.

Maybe we can help the Earth more by not using water while in the bathroom. Let's turn to paper like the Amrikans!
