Thanks to modern technology and science inventions that caused the death of one of the most beautiful and voluminous rivers in India, Yamuna. The river has been consistently exploited and polluted by urban population and is on the verge of extermination. There are many organisations to save forests, animals and even historical constructions, then why not a river?

Most of the rivers in our country are in dying condition. I don`t understand the logic behind this activity that people use the river water for sanitary purpose and then again they are using the same river water for religious occasions. Firstly we are polluting the water and then using it as a holy water. Does this make any sense?

River Yamuna is one of the most polluted rivers of the India. Almost every year mass death of fishes is reported. Pollution levels in the Yamuna River have risen so much that it falls under the category E, which makes it fit only for recreation and industrial, completely ruling out the possibility for underwater life and domestic supply.
