Can you imagine a life without drinking water for a couple of days? It is unimaginable, isn’t it? Water is an essential element for the survival of living beings. From our school days, we are studying the importance of water and its conservation but nobody gave much importance.

You would be thinking that this document is based on science subjects. But it is actually not like that. Just like without water living organisms cannot survive the same it is with the travel. We all are busy with our personal and professional issues. No one is sitting idle or have time to spend on unnecessary matters. But still, we feel bored with our daily chaos.
