India is endowed with a rich and vast diversity of natural resources, water being one of them. Its development and management plays a vital role in agriculture production. Integrated water management is vital for poverty reduction, environmental sustenance and sustainable economic development. National Water Policy (2002) envisages that the water resources of the country should be developed and managed in an integrated manner.
Water is food and fire is the eater of the food.
Fire is established in water and
Water is established in fire
-Taittiriya Upanishad 3.8
