Actor Amir Khan has recently been selected as the programmes ambassador.
For years Amir Khan has worked with the NGO called the Paani Foundation to help fight water shortage.
The Paani Foundation has even worked with the Maharashtra government.
In an interview, he said that we should save water just like money.
We do not spend money the way we want. We save and think before we spend.
Just like how you plan and invest money,
you must do the same for water.
While having a bath, before you turn the tap on you must think of ways to save water.
Its the same with water.
You have many taps in the house.
You must not take it for granted and use it anyhow. Save water and use it wisely.
You may think to save water one or two days.
No. You have to do this for the rest of your life.
So that the future generation can use water as well.
