$0.49 vs $1400

As per NYT, that's the difference (over one year) between drinking from the tap and from a store-bought bottle of water.

They mention a prospect that's already coming to fruition in India: as the rich drink from the bottle, they'll be less willing to support funding of water purification and distribution systems, leading to a decline in the quality of municipal water (which is the only type available -- if at all -- to the poor). With private groundwater pumps and UV/Filtration-based purification systems at home, the rich in many Indian cities no longer have a great stake in improving the quality and quantity of municipal water supply.
