Mangaluru, Jan 24: It is a fact that one of the major issues facing the world today is climate change, and a major part of this issue has to do with how people and industries consume and use water. Wastage of water as well as pollution of resources such as rivers and oceans have contributed to the problem of water scarcity in several parts of the world, and especially in India. Young people around the world and in India are taking steps to curb environmental damage and create awareness, and one of them is a youngster from Kerala.

All of 25, this youngster has undertaken a solo journey from Kerala to Kashmir on a bicycle to raise awareness with the message 'Save Water'.

Shaheer, hailing from Changaramkulam in Kerala, has a bachelors degree in arts from Victory College, Edappal.

He started his journey on January 20 from Changaramkulam and on Saturday January 23 he reached Mangaluru.

On entering Mangaluru, he received a warm welcome at Sri Anagha Motors, a Suzuki two-wheeler showroom in the city.

Speaking about his journey, Shaheer said, "It will be a great experience for me. I have met different people from different cultures during the course of my journey. I want to convey a message regarding the preservation of water. Water is a vital part of our everyday life, and I will be creating awareness on this in my two-month journey to Kashmir."

Shaheer will travel from Kerala and progress towards his destination via Karnataka, Goa, Maharastra, Nagpur, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Himachal and finally reach Kashmir.

    Importance of economic use of water and maintaining high stand of hygiene are very important issues. Spreading this message is a laudatory act. My hats off to this young man and best wishes.

    Good to see youths from Kerala are making noise for good reasons also.
