Recently ,while watching SATYAMEVA JAYATE I was surprised to know how our holy water GANGA is being polluted.We at the name of our holy rituals drop so many things in the river .GANGA as we all know used to carry pure drinking water, which is still used in our prayers and Pooja.It is is regarded so holy that all your sin gets washed off once we take bath in it.It is being given to dying people with a belief that it will clear his soul of all evils and reach him to the heaven.........But now the river is polluted.Whom to be blamed? The onus is on us.There is scarcity of drinking water in so many places but the people who get it sufficiently don't realizes it's value.
On the other hand lack of proper sanitation inIndia is also responsible for making our holy river dirty. INDIAcelebrated it's 66th INDEPENDENCE DAY but truely how many of us have done something for this nation.Statistics conducted by UNICEF in the year 2008 have shown that only 31% of India's population is using improved sanitation facilities . A UN study observed more people in India having access to a mobile phone than to a toilet as in 2010.Just 366million people (30.5%)had access to proper sanitation.
Due to improper sanitation facilities in India people defecate in the open rivers .1gram of feces could potentially contain 10 million viruses,1 million bacteria,1000 parasite cysts and 100 worm eggs.The Ganges river in India has a stunning 1.1 million lts. of raw sewage being disposed into it every minute.
Can we imagine of what's going to happen to our holy water? So friends it's a high time to make people aware of the reactions of their own action.We all have a group and we all are leaders.So why not start awareness program from our own.
