Abstract

Ancient Indian mythology believes the human body to have been constituted of five elements including the Earth, the Fire, the sky, water and the wind. Out of these five elements depicting different components of the being, water is believed as representing the faculty of thought and the heart. The same way as the faculty of thought covers and represents the most of a human, water occupies the most of the planet Earth. Both the availability and requirement are high for this resource. Further different needs of water may have different quality demands as well.
