India’s ancient Civilisations were born and perished depending on the river. For millions of years, we have abided by this algorithm, but, as they say, change is imminent. In the last few decades due to population increase and, technological and industrial development, water levels in rivers have been decreasing to meet the needs of people and also because of pollution increase. In short, are rivers are being depleted and is dying.  

The Ganges is now amongst the five most polluted rivers in the world, as dead bodies, industrial waste and plastic is dumped. Yamuna, the second most polluted river in India, Delhi has become a major contributor to the pollution increase because of its rapid industrialisation, urbanisation and population growth. The Narmada, Krishna and Kaveri, doesn’t even reach the sea four months a year. Is this what we want our rivers to be like? Never.

We still have time to make things right, to bring back balance. With your cooperation, the river can be rejuvenated, starting with these few small steps that can help make the river a bit more stable and healthier.

-To ban deforestation near river banks and agriculture in a five kilometre radius. Promote afforestation and follow horticulture.

-Ban industrial development near the river banks to prevent pollution of the river, and limit the number of dams and canals to stop rapid decrease of water levels.

-Put posters or signs up that tell not to dump waste material into the river.

-Create awareness and educate people of the effects of river depletion and how to prevent it.

If we don’t act now, then our future generation would suffer an even heavier repercussions. Join me in this movement by signing this petition which would be must forth in front of our honourable chairman of the central water commission, Dr. Rajendra Kumar Jain. Every signature is a step closer to the rejuvenation of India’s beloved rivers.
