Book Details

As the first rays of the sun light up the eastern sky and the bells sound in the temples, pilgrims step into the holy waters of the Ganga. They stand chest-deep in the river, offer flowers to the sun god, and take quick dips. Dhani looks at this spectacular morning ritual with a frown on his face. A question has been disturbing Dhani for many days now. The River Ganga, a river that is so sacred to us, is getting polluted at a rapid rate with industrial chemicals, untreated sewage, and ashes from funeral pyres. Dhani looks at the troubled waters and wonders: Why is the river goddess being treated with such thoughtless neglect? And is there a way to restore her to her former glory?

The Troubled Waters: Rescuing the Ganga takes us on a journey along several ghats of the Ganga, tells us what ails this holy river and also shows how it suffers from pollution caused by humans. An eye-opening story.
