The recent surge in public interest & media attention is thanks to grassroots campaigners - people who know and love their local river, who’ve seen and documented the harm, and resolved to DO SOMETHING.

Taking action starts with reconnection.
Water is the ultimate connector.

Our rivers carry it through cities and countryside, through our stories & history, through every living being.

A river runs through you, between kitchen tap & toilet flush. The state of our rivers is, literally, everyone’s business. Image

River Ganga Turns Green in #Varanasi; Experts Suggest Algae Could be the Reason…

(📸: IANS)
It has been a few days since the colour of the #GangaRiver in #Varanasi turned green. The change in the colour of the water has become a major cause of concern for the local people—more so, because, in the same period last year, the Ganga water had become sparkling clean.
According to Dr B.D. Tripathi, the chairman of Malviya Ganga Research Centre at Banaras Hindu University , the greenish appearance of the river could be due to microcystis algae.

#MadrasHighCourt, while hearing suo motu case over pollution of River Amaravathi, Karur refers to #EluruWaterTragedy and pollution in river Godavari in AP:

“Only when tragedy occurs, we wake up from slumber like Rip Van Winkle. Otherwise, we remain silent."
“… hundreds of people are dying of disease and it is found because drinking water contained copper and nickel. Do you want this to happen to Amaravathi also? The river Amaravathi is the drinking source for how many?”

"Water is polluted means cultivation, drinking water, everything is polluted. What is the purpose of opening so many hospitals? We are creating all these health hazards.”
