05. : Jal Utsav: Water, a Celebration of Life –

All our life’s we are trying to celebrate the things we love. That’s how we come to love and celebrate and honor the things we need. Now we realize that is not helping. We need to honor what is needed to keep the sources alive. Then the source will stay. So, we don’t need to honor water; we need to honor CARE; because through care comes water; clean and available to everybody. Care is sharing; care is thinking how to find solutions; and making them happen. Honor not the result; but the way to get there, and there for you secure the result.
This performance created by the Theater Embassy was part of the Jal Utsav water festival, a festival organized around World Water Day by the Hydrology project in Delhi around World Water Day, highlighting water issues through youth and art was brought.
