WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE BUT.......
Illumination strikes you at the oddest of all places.
I went to see Quantum of Solace at a PVR in the Capital. During intermission, while using the urinal, I spotted a small plate posted there. It was indeed illuminating. I now know that of all the water in the world, only 3% of it is drinkable. And that one single urinal uses some 101,000 liters of water in a year. ie 3 big sized swimming pools or so the urinal informed me. The whole point was that it was a water free urinal and it had small napthalene-cubish looking object which was supposed to keep it dry and clean. (With the onset of winter thats a prominent word at the back of my mind).
And there is a company out there making those small cubes and intending to make a lot of money selling those.
And that water is indeed a precious resource. If nothing else, that parched my throat, exacerbated by the fact that Quantum of Solace was about water and revenge and not oil. I-raq is passe, lemme have a go at the himalayan glaciers(or some such words, in future, may cross the 'mind' of GW Bush the III).
