India's battle with water crisis has attracted attention from all around the world. While groundwater sources being rapidly depleted are worrisome, Chennai's water crisis has now left the city high and dry. Actor and environmentalist Leonardo Di Caprio whose Instagram timeline talks all about climate change, took to Instagram to share a heartbreaking picture highlighting the problem of water in Chennai. Resharing a picture from BBC News, the post read, "Only rain can save Chennai from this situation." A well completely empty, and a city without water. The southern Indian city of Chennai is in crisis, after the four main water reservoirs ran completely dry. The acute water shortage has forced the city to scramble for urgent solutions and residents have to stand in line for hours to get water from government tanks." 

It further added, "As the water levels depleted, hotels and restaurants started to shut down temporarily, and the air con was turned off in the city's metro. Officials in the city continue to try and find alternative sources of water - but the community continue to pray for rain." Given the delayed monsoon this year, the rains have finally caught up down South. Take a look at Leonardo's post below:

This guy has to learn one thing: he has to walk the walk-not just talk the talk.

It’s time Tamil Nadu government immediately start building sea water recycling plant for the next generation.

Anon from Melbourne

Irresponsibles under irresponsibles, who cares?

Here’s a suggestion but maybe instead of paying Salman Khan 400 crore for a crappy show they can put that money towards water crisis?

He’s involved in pollution crisis and climate change organizations however his carbon foot print is longer than all his speeches..takes private jets everywhere. Luxury yachts, jet skis you name it..
