Water



                                                                                 
The aliens were desperate. Water generating system on the spaceship had failed and without water end was certain.

Sensors traced water on a planet in Milk way. They headed for that planet; confident that they find pure water and survive.

But that did not happen. They couldn’t find even a drop of unpolluted water anywhere on that planet. Every ocean, every lake, every river was like a cesspool. Even water deep inside the planet was polluted.

“How could they manage to pollute every drop of water?”

No one on the spaceship was interested in the answer; for end appeared certain.

  4. I often wondered how an intelligent life-form might view our tenure of this planet: as deserving custodians, or in much the same way as I view the aphids in my garden.
