2 Ramaswamy R. Iyer
Towards Water Wisdom: Limits, Justice, Harmony
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761935851 / 9780761935858; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Towards Water Wisdom makes a fervent plea for an urgent and radical transformation of our thinking on water. The author redefines the projected water crisis as one of mismanagement rather than scarcity, and calls for a more equitable, harmonious and sustainable management of the resource. Water-related conflicts are also discussed, including the Indus Treaty, the differences over Baglihar, the Cauvery and Ravi-Beas disputes, and rehabilitation problems in the Narmada Valley. The author questions the idea of property rights in water and argues that the fundamental or human right to water must take precedence over contractual and economic rights. The inadequacies of India`s water laws and policies are examined and a case made for a constitutional declaration on water and a national water law. Finally, the author widens the perspective and draws attention to a changing world that makes a change in our thinking imperative. Printed Pages: 270. 028842
