How could we miss out on this?
14/06/2007

Pollution is a vexing problem in India, and when it is about rivers and water bodies, the problem gets deeply intensified. On an average, 90% to 95% of domestic sewage and around 70% of all industrial waste are discharged into waters, and the same later gets mixed with the water table and ends up entering major rivers flowing across the country. Not only industrial units, but agriculture also is a contributor to river pollution. Fertilisers, pesticides and chemicals have contaminated surface water and water sources heavily. All of India’s 14 major rivers are shoddily polluted. Almost 50 million cubic metres of untreated sewage and 20 million litres of industrial waste get deposited at the coastal lines of India annually. Astonishingly, Yamuna is fed with 200 million litres of raw sewage and 20 millions litres of industrial waste daily, while the distributaries from river Cauvery, which serve millions of southern Indian homes, have already taken a blackish hue. Worshipping and desecration of rivers clearly go hand in hand in India. While millions of Indians might religiously want to take their last breath by the banks of sacred Ganga, one wonders how many would be ready to take a bath in it every day!
