Abstract

Water is life as it aids in nurturing the lives of all biota. The availability of clean water has become obliquely central to the quality of human life. However, there are deep currents that affect the water dynamics of today’s world. Currently, two-thirds of our planet is covered water; however, the unfortunate paradox is that in the next decade, bulk of the human population will lack access to safe drinking water. This acute shortage of drinking water may change our traditional perceptions about both the quality and usage of water in the future. Further, the presence of geogenic pollutants in groundwater makes this issue more complex. Of late, the presence of fluoride in drinking water has attracted much attention in the scientific world due to the impending issues associated with human health and well-being.
