It is mentioned in the scriptures that Lord Shiva cured the disease of the moon on the day of Triodashi, when the effect of the moon was diminishing.
Due to this, Pradosh Vrat is observed in Triodashi of every month in remembrance of Lord Shiva. It is more fruitful to worship Shiva in the time of pradosh.

World Water day

The world is moving towards modernization and tech innovation but even today there are many countries in the world, including Nepal, who are struggling with water scarcity. Due to the unavailability of clean water worldwide, waterborne diseases are taking the form of epidemics.At the same time, it is also said that the Third World War can be sparked for water. However, the world does not have to face this situation, so the United Nations is trying to make the whole world aware through world water day on 22nd March.

When did World Water Day begin to be celebrated?

To make every citizen of the world aware of the importance of water, the United Nations started celebrating "World Water Day". World Water Day initiative was officially announced at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. In 1993, World Water Day was organized for the first time on 22 March.

Why Water Day is celebrated?
World Water Day is celebrated by the United Nations, including the member nations, to promote the real activities of global water conservation. This campaign is particularly promoted every year by a unit of the United Nations agency, in which people are encouraged to listen and explain issues related to water, as well as the adjustment of international activities for World Water Day.

The theme of world water day 2024 is "Water for peace".
Right now, we are seriously off-track to meet Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030. Billions of people and countless schools, businesses, healthcare centers, farms and factories don’t have the safe water and toilets they need. To accelerate change, we need more action. Learn about how in the UN World Water Development Report, the UN 2024 Water Conference and through stories from around the world.

The voices of water conservation should be heard in all aspects of the environment, agriculture, health, and education, to reduce natural calamities like floods, landslides, and other things. Water is our life and pure drinking water is both our right and duty.
Let us behave according to the essence of Water Day.
