Awanish Sharan, an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer, often shares motivational and informative posts on his social media handles. This time around, he shared a photo on Twitter on the growing importance of saving water.
The photo shows a man standing with a placard in his hand, which reads, "When full is not needed, ask for a cutting pani." This powerful message grabbed the attention of many users and they appreciated sending a strong message with such simplicity.
"Take half a glass of water in a hotel-restaurant. Ask for more only when necessary," says the caption of the now viral post.
The post was shared on December 2 and since then it has amassed over four thousand likes.
होटल-रेस्टोरेंट में आधा ग्लास पानी लें. ज़रूरत पड़ने पर ही और माँगे. pic.twitter.com/TEjkqSDUuh— Awanish Sharan (@AwanishSharan) December 2, 2022
"With you on this," said one user.
A second user commented, "I saw similar campaign in many hotel restaurants also already. A very nice campaign, we should encourage this more and more."
Adding a suggestion, another person remarked, "We should Apply it at office and home too, Mr. Sharan sir"
"But most of the restro provide only packed water bottles.. They don't care about requirement... I think that's create more plastic waste as well as wastage of water. Even they don't refill the bottles," said one person.
