India is facing one of its major and most serious water crisis, and according to a recent report by the NITI Aayog, 21 Indian cities will run out of groundwater by 2020. This year, several states struggled with an acute water shortage due to high demand, erratic monsoon rains, water pollution and receding groundwater levels in both urban and rural sectors. The problem is only getting worse in the country’s drought prone regions.

To highlight the severity of this situation through Mission Paani — a movement against India's water crisis, Harpic and News18 are hosting its launch event on August 27 from 2 pm to 3pm.

Anand Narasimhan, Deputy Executive Editor, Network18, will host the event. The discussion panel of the Harpic – News18 Mission Paani initiative will feature the following esteemed personalities:

● Amitabh Bachchan, Campaign Ambassador

● Narasimhan Eswar, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, RB Hygiene & Home, South Asia, RB

● Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways and Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises

Representatives from water.org, India would include:

• Gajendra Singh Sekhawat, Minister, Jal Shakti

• Devendra Fadnavis, CM, Maharashtra

• Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, Founder, Rally For Rivers

The Harpic – News18 Mission Paani launch event will serve as a window to India's ongoing and worsening water crisis through a series of discussions and interviews with the panelists.

This initiative is important not only for big non-government and government organisations, society elite and experts, but also for you — the citizens of India.
