Ganga the Holi river in India starts its journey from the Himalaya passing through the Gangetic plains meeting the Bay of Bengal. During this journey it irrigates and provides drinking water to us fellow Humans!!

It collects city waste in all forms - plastics, heavy metals like mercury, lead which are carcinogenic , human waste, sewage and what not!

The Ganges is threatened by severe pollution. This poses a danger not only to humans but also to animals; the Ganges is home to approximately 140 species of fish and 90 species of amphibians. The river also contains reptiles and mammals, including critically endangered species such as the Gharialand South Asian river dolphin. The levels of fecal coliform bacteria from human waste in the river near Varanasi are more than a hundred times the Indian government's official limit. The Ganga Action Plan, an environmental initiative to clean up the river, has been considered a failure which is variously attributed to corruption, a lack of will in the government, poor technical expertise,[c]environmental planning and a lack of support from the native religious authorities.

We need to act now to preserve!! It is late but still there is hope!
