Rate this:
Traveling from Gaumukh, the source of the holy Ganges, to Gangasagar, where the river enters the sea, this program acquaints viewers with some of India's venerable cultural traditions-and reflects on environmental factors that are steadily destroying this sacred Indian waterway. The Durga Puja Festival at Gangnani, a wedding procession in Haridwar, ritual bathing at Allahabad, and ritual cremation and evening puja at Varanasi are featured, and the dual impacts of global warming and severe water pollution are addressed. Commentary is provided by academics, yoga master Swami Vivekananda, an Aghori baba, and others.
