Lucknow, Jun 16 (UNI) At an age when most of the children collect stamps as part of their hobby, a 15-yr-old girl from the Uttar Pradesh capital has come forward to assist the state government in its ''save water'' campaign.
On the state government's continuous appeal to check the diminishing ground water level and prevent potable water crisis, Haya Fatima, a standard XII student from Lucknow, has started a ''save underground and potable water'' campaign through Postal Department stamps.
In this unique awareness campaign, Haya displayed those postcards, which carry impressive punching lines on them like '' Piye svach pani, rahein bimari rahit'', '' Svach pani peena, sukhi jeevan jeena'', ''svach jal seemit hai, iska vivekpooran istemal karein'' etc.
To spread this message among all sections of people, postcards in several languages, comprising English, Marathi, Telugu, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kannada and Bangala, were made part of the campaign.
Talking on her initiative with UNI today, Haya said ''I want more people to come forward to popularise this move.'' ''The time has come, when water scarcity problem needs to be dealt with seriously and it can only be made possible with the assitance of a comman-man,'' she said.
