Water is actually the elixir of life. Everyone should use the water in limited according their need. Water may avail excess, but not in deficit. Gulf countries, some of the African countries appear as deserts and very difficult to lead a normal life without water. The place is not having water that is a desert. If the place is in water resource, that is a heaven for human survival. If human wants to realize water, he should be in the desert. The thirst for a man can be solved, but a thirst of animals, birds living in the forest is unsolved. Hence one can understand the need of water to survival. The title of the paper is taken from the greatest Tamil grandfather Thiruvalluvar?s ?Thirukural?. He has written about the water in one of his ?Kurals? (double lined poem). He further says, if water fails, functions of nature will sease and if rain fails, no men can walk in regular duty.

But ordinary man, common people, animals, birds, reptiles are depending upon the water and its usage. Karnad has immensely defines the fire sacrifice for rain in this play.
