World Water Day – Art Competition

World Water Day is being celebrated every year on 22nd March to sensitize and create awareness about the most precious natural resource – Water. Owing to the looming crisis, theme for the year 2021 has been aptly chosen as Valuing Water. The value we place on water be it for our environment, our society and our culture, is the spirit behind this theme.
