Dalai Lama: India's Water Supply at Risk

Gustavo Caballero/ Getty Images(NEW DELHI) -- The Dalai Lama is urging India to think critically about the melting glaciers in the Tibetan plateau because millions of India's people use the water from that region.

The Dalai Lama expressed concern while speaking at the centenary celebrations of former Indian President R. Venkataraman.

He quoted experts who say the glaciers are melting faster than in any other part of the world. The Dalai Lama said that water supplies will be jeopardized and the demand for freshwater will dramatically increase if the glaciers disappear.
