17 FOREIGNERS ON A "SAVE GANGA AWARENESS TRIP"

 
(Sep. 08, 2005)

 

A group of youngsters from across the globe landed in Kanpur on a singular mission to awaken the Indian masses so that they stop polluting the sacred river Ganga . The group started its Ganga journey from Rishikesh on Aug 8 and arrived in Kanpur on Aug 18. The group will travel up to Varanasi and wind up its trip on Aug 28.

The group performed dance-drama on a theme "Wake up and stop polluting Ganga " at three different places in Kanpur . Young foreigners dressed like sadhus were shown paying obeisance to Ganga which descended in the matted locks of Shiva. It was also depicted that Ganga was clean and blue in the Himalayas but turned brown and muddy in the plains when it started receiving dirt, filth, garbage, sewage and industrial wastewater on its onward journey.
