There are many a bigger missions launched as a movement by several organisations in the country to clean and cleanse the river Ganges (Ganga) and its ghats. It is a different matter, however, that hardly any result of their efforts is tangibly coming forth. But there are some people who have voluntarily taken the task to themselves on individual footing. The latest being Gayatri Pariwar, the large membership of which assembled by the river side at Sarsaiyya Ghat at Kanpur (India) and started the work of cleaning the river and its ghats on individual footing with broom sticks and other instruments of cleansing in their hands. Besides cleaning the ghat and its steps, they also picked up the waste and the garbage alongside the river. What they couldn’t do was to go deep inside the water in the river and collect the filth seeing to it that the garbage and the filth accumulated there is taken out. This requires the help of heavy machines for the purpose, which they didn’t have. What they could do was just something very frugal, but the message their service like this carried on environmental front was big enough to awaken the governmental channels for doing the needful on an urgency footing. If they could do this much, something little of course, why the governmental machinery with vast resources at their command can’t take up the task as their responsibility with urgency measures. The water of Ganga is badly polluted with alarming signals, and if necessary steps in the matter are not taken peremptorily, the results may only prove to be highly disastrous for millions of the people who consume the water of the river in their daily life as a routine and otherwise too particularly during religious festivals.
