Groundwater is a precious and the most widely distributed resource of the earth and unlike any other mineral resource, it gets annual replenishment from the meteoric precipitation. The worlds total water resources are estimated at 1.37 x 108 Million hectares (ha-m). Of these global water resources about 97.2% is salt water mainly in oceans, and only 2.8% is available as Fresh water. Out of the 2.8%, 2.2% is available as surface water and 0.6% as groundwater. Even out of this 2.2% of surface water, 2.15% is fresh water in glaciers and ice caps and only of the order of 0.01% (1.36x104 M ha-m) is available in lakes and reservoirs and 0.0001% in streams. Out of 0.6% of stored groundwater, only about 0.3% (41.1 x 104 M ha-m) can be economically extracted with the present drilling technology, the remaining is unavailable as it is below 800 m.

Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and civil rights hero, Martin Luther King, Jr., on that August 1963, at Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C. delivered one of the worlds most admirable speeches of all time.
A speech that echoed across freedom movements in every corner of the world.
"I have a dream" he said. Yet he cautioned;
"...In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy out thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high planes of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force..."
An advice worth remembering at this difficult time for Maldives as a Nation.
I strongly condemn violence taking place in the Maldives.Whether it be Police Brutality, isolated and/or organised attacks on Policemen. Whether it be by activists of Political divisions in the County. Or by random thugs taking advantage of the current political instability in the Country. I am Against any form of Violence !!

"... The white Chevrolet rolled into the porch and two people were trying to get out. I threw the second grenade, which landed near the revolting door... It was for the first time that the people who were hanging around Hotel Intercontinental saw with their own eyes that an attack on the government was being made by the freedom fighters ..."
For those of you who have not met a real "Guerrilla rebel", a real "Freedom Fighter", a real "Hero", a real "Scouter" and a real "Gentleman", all "in one", here is the man you should read about.
Habibul Alam, only a student at Dhaka University, joined the liberation war in Bangladesh early 1971. He fought for a free independent Bangladesh under the command of Sector-2 and K-forces. He made his stand strong and made history witness, his courage and bravery by leading the first group of 17 boys that came into the heart of Dhaka City to fight the enemy. His role in the liberation war till its very end was not just important but necessary.
For his active participation and bravery in the war of Liberation in 1971 the Government of the Peoples' Republic of Bangladesh awarded him the gallantry award "Bir Pratik".
