PROJECTS: GANGES : DEATH OF A RIVER
The Ganges is a prime example of the unresolved contradiction between man and the environment. The Ganges is a river intimately connected with every aspect of Indian life. It is a source of water, energy and livelihood for millions of people who live along the banks of this river and thanks to the fertile land, it provides food to more than one-third of the Indian population.
It’s ecosystem also includes one of the most numerous and varied animal and plant species. Despite this, today it is one of the most polluted rivers in the world because of toxic waste factories dump in its water every day, damaging human health and the environment that surrounds it. What will happen tomorrow? Is the Ganges destined to die under the blows of humanity, or can we hope for change?
