“Of course I worry about #Ganga. She is our life. She is our water. But here, she is clean and happy,” he said in broken English and #Hindi I could just barely decipher. “Please, more #samosa?” Here at #Devprayag, the sacred spot where the #Bhagirathi and #Alaknanda Rivers join and the #Ganges officially begins, the river does indeed look healthy and happy, with torrents of water roaring from the #Garhwal #Himalaya above. But, just miles downstream from his humble shop, #dams and #diversions, #pollution and #population take their toll, and this mighty, #sacred river suffers greatly. Along its 1500 mile course to the sea, it is more #revered and #reviled than any on earth. #GangaS2S #indiapictures #indiaphotos #india_gram #indiagram #travelstoke #reveredandreviled #liveyouradventure #portraitmood #portrait
