Water – Speech 1.
It is impossible to survive without water. The human body cannot survive without water for more than 72 hours. Water plays a big role in our survival. Good morning, respected teachers and fellow students. Today I got the golden opportunity to stand in front of you and give a speech on water. Water is our basic necessity. It is the most common natural resource present on earth.
Water can be used in several ways. It is used in daily life such as drinking, cooking, bathing, moping, gardening. It is one of the most important sources in agriculture. Without water, it is impossible to grow crops especially food grains like rice. Water also majorly used in industries. For the cooling process to making products from it. It can be used in every way.
It is not important for completing the void of human beings. It also plays an important role in managing nature. Since it is available as small bodies like wells and ponds too large bodies like sea and ocean. It helps to absorb the heat from the sun and manage the temperature of the area. It also helps in bringing the rain by the procedure of evaporation. The vapour of the water goes up I the sky and forms the rainy cloud. Hence, water bodies bring rain too. The manage to get the balance of fresh water on earth. The availability of water on earth is 72% and from which less than 3% of water is fresh and the rest water is considered as saline water. Also, by bringing the rain in hill area they indirectly clean the valley and provide water automatically to all trees and sediment the rivers. Also, it gets settled in the layers of rocks and form mineral.
It is also the oldest form of transportation. The water bodies have been the source of guidance of route. Since very early times people are travelling on boats along with that even nowadays it is an extremely helpful source for transporting bulk to one place to others. It is one of the great sources of income for the country too. Water transportation is one of the most expensive transportation. Water not only important for humans. It is also a home of aquatic animals. Humans can even still survive for few hours without water but for aquatic animals, it is hard to survive for a few minutes. They breathe through gills and take the oxygen present in the water only.
Except for the livelihood, it makes our life simpler too. Water produces thermal energy which can be used in creating electricity. It is the option for supplying electricity in urban areas. The areas where it is a bit difficult to plant a big electricity provider setup, thermal energy can be produced and reach electricity for them as well.
Everyone! Can you see how much important water is for us? But the sad thing is we are not valuing such a necessary thing. We are destroying it. Already we have a minor amount of fresh water and soon it will be used too. Polluting water means diminishing of aquatic life and increasing global warming. This can create a big impact on human life. We should be responsible and caring towards our nature. Our present awareness will sustain our future.
Thank you! Everyone for listening to my speech and being a cooperative audience.

Importance of Water – Speech 2.
Good morning to everyone gathered here. I extend my welcome to the teachers and students. We all know that water is important to us. Today I am going to tell you about the reasons why water is very important for us. Water is the most widely used resource on earth, yet it is very limited. Of the total water on earth, only 3% is fresh water and two-thirds of it is in the form of ice caps and glaciers. Only 0.3% of the total water on earth is in the usable form for human consumption.
Water is essential for survival of life. Human body can go on for a week without food but it cannot survive without water. Water is essential for the various life sustaining functions in the body. Circulation of blood requires hydration to prevent blood from thickening. Over 60% of the human body is made up of water. Hydration of the cells is essential for the very survival of life forms. It is essential for the excretion and expulsion of bodily wastes, making it crucial for the digestion process. This makes water very crucial for existence of life forms.
Water is important for the production of food and basic necessities. All plant life and vegetation, like other life forms, need water for growth. Agriculture and allied activities depend upon water to be able to produce food for the population. If you might have noticed, river basins are agriculturally prosperous regions. For instance, Punjab, a state of 5 rivers is one of the most agriculturally prosperous regions in the country. The presence of water is need for intensive cultivation. The production of other consumables like milk, and products of agriculture such as coir, clothes etc. need a lot of water.
The uses spelled out in this speech are just the tip of the iceberg. Water is needed for practically every process that sustains life and makes it more and more luxurious. This makes water very important and creates a need for conversation of water. Let’s save water for the future and for our environment.
