Ganga, Its Activism & Media

By Jayanta Basu

(Transboundary Water Governance Issue Brief)
The pattern & expression of activism & media response in context to river Ganges has to be appreciated in the light of general psyche of Indians towards their national river. The pattern remains an enigma as the river is revered & polluted simultaneously. Clearly it is an issue of micro level reverence versus macro level insensitiveness towards the river that sustains not only greater part of India but the subcontinent.
