It is humanity’s good fortune that such distress of mind caused to Budha ultimately resulted in a great benefit to the world by generating great massage of love and compassion which came to be known as Budhism. India, being the country, where water is worshiped parallel to Almighty, it seems unfortunate that our motherhood herself faces disputes over its waters. Inspite of all the respectable status attached to water, today, the river water disputes are becoming seeds of unending quarrels amongst the states. These inter-state river water disputes are affecting the integrity and unity of India.
