The book carefully unpacks the hegemonic discourses that shield the ideology of neo-colonialism deeply entrenched in the intentions of privatization of water resources. The author's sensitive and sustained critique of privatization of water unearths the pitfalls of water management in India. This intellectual work also undertakes a study on the significance of `water' in various religions, such as Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism apart from Christianity. Major issues like water management, water pollution, waterborne diseases, ground water, climate change, water in relation to women and children, water in relation to dalits and tribals, privatization of water, and many more, have been dealt with, in detail.There have been numerous research works on this subject, but the present one differs as theological critique on privatization of water being its main thirst. The biblical-theological discernment has been employed as a yardstick to make the critique stronger. This research formulates a comprehensive view of the problem enabling a critical response and making the Christian faith community realize the need to be responsible to defend water from the emerging jeopardy.This book is grounded on a subject that needs immediate attention so as to secure the welfare of the most vulnerable communities in India. It has a prophetic vision which calls the Church, as a part of society, to respond vigorously in eradicating the evil forces of privatization of water in India. It is meant for Ecologists, Socio-Economists, Christian Laity, Church Clergies, Religious Leaders, Policymakers, Researchers and Students, alike.Printed Pages: 143.
