Ganga in Indian History and Mythology Part V

Ganga in Indian History and Mythology Part V This is the fifth and concluding part of a five part series on Ganga. We just touched upon certain known aspects of the river with the aim of removing certain misconceptions in the minds of some of us, crept in through social media in the recent past. Hopefully, some of the references made will make students among us to read and understand more about India's heritage in the form of material resources and knowledge remaining unexploited. Ganga and Saraswati are just symbols. Beyond the historical and Mythological relevance, Ganga has a more important role in supporting agriculture and connecting India in every sense in the coming years. With this positive note and hoping to revisit the subject with more encouraging information we close this series today 🙏-Warrier Those who have missed earlier parts of the series can access them M G Warrier M 134 1) Haridwar 2) Life is Ganga THE FLOW IS LIFE AND THE STAGNATION IS DEATH. BE A RIVER IN LIFE AND IN THE LAST YOU WILL MERGE WITH THE OCEAN / SUPREME CONSCIOUSNESS. TAKE CARE OF SELF & OTHERS. A Select Response Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai We enjoy reading about the intricacies and finer aspects of Ganga along with its geographical importance. We also learn that Vishnu got married to Lakshmi, Saraswathi and Ganga. Due to the extreme behaviour of Ganga and Saraswathi Vishnu found them unmanageable and therefore transformed Ganga and Saraswathi into rivers. In due course Saraswathi got dried up and attained the status of Goddess of knowledge. Ganga continues her fertile journey. B Ganga's sagging image Excerpts : "A team of scientists at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur has found out that the dissolved inorganic constituents like trace and toxic heavy metals of the Ganga river can be compared to the global average river composition, and local contamination hotspots are not persistent downstream. The researchers came to a conclusion after carrying out 3,645 river water analyses of dissolved trace elements measured at 38 targeted locations in the Ganga basin collected during the pre-monsoon, monsoon, and post-monsoon seasons of 2014, 2015 and 2016" C Inland Water Transport in India : Ganga's relevance Excerpts : Inland waterways is an important pillar of ‘Arth-Ganga,’ a project that aims to channelize economic activity along the banks of Ganga River to promote inclusive growth for India and generate enormous employment opportunities. The project is being implemented by the Ministry of Shipping of the Government of India. The Inland Waterways Authority of India is set to deploy small floating jetties and 10 roll-on/roll-off vessels. Small floating jetties offer easy and cost effective means of transporting goods and cargo National waterways is playing a key role in further boosting India–Nepal connectivity. National Waterways 1 will act as a major channel of connectivity for Nepal through Varanasi–Nautanwa, Kaughat–Raxaul, and Sahibganj–Biratnagar routes.
