War over water is not a new phenomenon in this world.the word has seen many fatal battle fought for the occupation of water resources. The ancient history reveals that the armies fought until the water resources were occupied. That side was victorious as overpowered the water resources. It is not an exaggeration that water was, water is, and water will be the important item on the agenda of world politics. The changing environment is affecting the water the most. The disturbance in the ecosystem is an issue discussed in details since long. The increase in temperature first of all inversely affects the water in all forms. The ice melts the water level in oceans increases and the land diminishes. Then the melting of ice means the great catastrophe for the earth. The rain system in the world changes a lot. The rainy seasons of the different geographical regions have changed. There is a greater drought in the areas where rainfall was already meager. In the same way the areas or regions have greater rains and off season rains due to this plodding with nature. If the so called industrial development continues at the same ratio with the same ignorance of atmosphere, the people will find no other way to fight. It is one side of the coin. The other side of the picture is some what optimistic. A positive change has occurred as far as the environmental awareness is concerned. The industrialists are in the line with the compliance of the environmental laws. The scientists along with the governmental organizations are working arduously to alienate the seriousness of the issue. Things that are considered alien to environment are being replaced or treated to make them environ friendly. The UN and other non governmental organizations have done yeoman services for this human friendly cause.
All the changes aside the politics of water are also changing color. The people have become aware of the seriousness of the situation. They know that the war is no solution to this problem. If one power snatches the water resources, the bereaved nation will not stay idle. She will also prepare for the counter attack and in this way the chain of war would ensue that is not acceptable to humankind.
The governments would surely be share the water resources but without war or any aggressive action without necessity. Necessity here means if a nation is adamant enough to fulfill the obligations of the Pacts, the other power might use force.
Man has learnt enough to tackle the crises situation. The powers have experienced worst situations and know how to deal in these conditions. The danger of atomic war was averted, the third world war was to start but the sages of the time tackled the situation and saved the world from the scourge of destruction.
So it is hoped that the water would not be a source of universal war, the governments would sort out some way to handle the water resources, however just distribution can not be guaranteed.
