She could not complain nor cry—the final message will make you think about your social obligations and responsibilities. .

This young girl has witnessed life from a depressing and tragic point of view since childhood. From being forced to work as a rag picker to witnessing her mother's profession as a prostitute, she has seen the low points of life but is unable to emote or shed tears precisely. 

She witnesses her siblings death but cannot cry!

She witnesses an older man forcing himself upon her but cannot cry!

She is being forced to get married to an older man and yet she cannot cry! 

The gut-wrenching reason being lack of water. Wonder why?

Human body needs water in adequate amounts to keep normal functioning including secretion of fluids in order and India faces acute shortage of water in slum-pockets. 

The journey through this girl's point of view is deeply heart-breaking and will entrench itself in your psyche and the message will stay deeply embedded. 

Lets pledge to be careful and understanding towards other sections of society and save water starting today and now. That's the least we all can do.
