Water is the essential part of human life. ‘Right over water' is one of the basic human rights. But over the past few years, this right has come under severe threat as several countries are trying to gain complete control over the rivers that flow through their heartland carrying major volumes of water and flowing into another country where the river is either on it's downstream or the volume of water carried is less. In a nutshell, we can say that major conspiracies of gaining the benefits of the trans-boundary rivers by countries at the upstream are gradually gaining momentum. The recent statement made by the Indian government regarding the Indus Water Treaty and the sudden rise in the turbidity of the Brahmaputra (with fingers being pointed at China of constructing dams over the Yarlung Tsangpo to divert its course) have raised quite a few eyebrows. Questions are being asked if there looms a threat of a Water War between India and Pakistan and India and China, where Bangladesh, Bhutan, and Nepal would eventually turn out to be sorry spectators? It is a catch-22 situation for each of the countries. Partha Prawal tries to analyse the possibilities of a water war between India and China and India and Pakistan and its consequences. The author also tries to find out if at all there is a possibility of water wars and if there is then why?
