Natural resources are not an individual’s propertyWater is a precious natural resource and we all know that water is not only required by human beings but by all living organisms present in nature. It is also necessary that there must be safe and secure access to water for all living beings. In the absence of drinkable water, people are forced to consume unsafe water. Many big-profit-making companies consume large quantities of groundwater in their processes. Many bottling companies are extracting the groundwater while some of them tapped water at its place of natural origin and damaging the environment for their profit, simultaneously exploiting the rights of local people living there. These natural resources belong to them by birth, and they use them sustainably. But they are also protecting and conserving them for generations as they protect their property. And in return, they get some water and other resources from nature. If somebody tried to hold their rights on these resources or degrade them, it hurts them because they feel the pain of nature. Their roots are deeply connected with nature and its resources. So we can understand that this is their property. They are sensible towards their natural resources and their demand is very less than compared to big bottling plants that do nothing for the protection and conservation of these resources.
There may be the various meaning of property for different persons. In my view, natural resources are also our property and are common property and not an individual's private property. If we protect and conserve our nature like our property, then we will be able to give a clean, green and safe environment to our future generation. So, protect our natural resources humbly and use them sustainably.
