The Ministry of Jal Shakti shared a video that highlights the importance of water for humans and animals.

The video showed an elephant working on a hand pump to get its share of drinking water, possibly because it could not find a natural source like a lake or pond nearby when it was thirsty. The video showed the jumbo using its trunk to collect water accumulated on the ground to drink.

New Delhi :

The ministry wanted to convey the message that conserve water or be prepared to struggle to find a natural freshwater source.

“Even an elephant understands the importance of every drop of water. Then why do we humans waste this invaluable resource,” the ministry asks in Hindi, urging people to learn from the elephant and start conserving water.
