these rivers from pollution in order to save them for our ourselves and future generations. The project has been in the pipeline for the past four years and it has been taken up with renewed vigor. The plantation will be monitored every six months and a video recording will be sent to the headquarters every time for verification. After all, potable water is key to success in conserving all other areas. Filling infrastructural gaps would also help in properly conceptualizing the river protection e entails not only concentrating on the mainstream network of the rivers but also tributaries, rivulets and torrents. They tell a story, provide geologic, ecological, biological, and human history, shape culture and societies, provide transport, purity, and more. A deep respect for the river is cultural and together we can work to embed that respect in others to maintain and improve the health of our rivers.
No effort for environment protection would be complete without focusing on rivers and other means of water supply. According to a secret memo from BC Hydro, most if not all of our needs could be met by simple conservation. The condition of both Ganga and Yamuna is for anyone to see and evaluate. Let's look briefly how we got public power. Governments have to create river-friendly policies. The government too realizes that all developments including raising the health index of the people depend on availability of quality water.
