MAJOR CITIES OF INDIA PRODUCE 38,354 MILLION LITRES PER DAY OF SEWAGE THAT FLOW INTO RIVERS/BANKS THEN SEEK IN THE GROUND(GROUNDWATER). 80% OF INDIA SEWAGE FLOWS UNTREATED INTO INDIA'S COUNTRIES RIVERS. Delhi, for instance, uses 4,346 million litres of water per day of which 87% returns as waste.

INDUSTRIES #MONEYMAKERS

SCIENTIST WHO WORKED ON THE CSE REPORT FOUND THAT THOUSANDS OF SMALL FACTORIES DUMP WASTE MIXED IN WITH TOXIC FLUID ARE DUMPED OUT INTO THE MAIN WATER SOURCES. INDUSTRIES SOMETIMES MAKE ASH PONDS FROM THEIR REMAININGS. NEVERTHELESS, THE SOLID WASTE FROM FACTORIES FLOW INTO THE WATER. ALSO, LED COMES FROM SOME PIPES THAT CONNECT TO SOME OF INDIAS INDUSTRIES.

*PESTICEDE RUNOFFS OCCUR WHEN RAIN IN INDIA HAPPENS

*INDIA IS COMMONLY KNOWN FOR FARMING

*8 POURS (259,000KG) F CHLORIDES FLOW INTO MAIN RIVERS LIKE GANGES RIVER AND YAMUNA. AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES ATTEN TO USE MORE FERTILIZERS (ANIMALS THAT THEY HAVE ALOT OF), PESTICIDES,AND WEEDICIDES(HELP HERBS,PLNTS,SHRUBS TO GROW).

HINDUS SOCIAL PRACTICES/DEATH/PURPOSES OF THE RIVER GANGES

In HINDUISM, the river GANGA is considered SACRED and is personified as a GODDESS, GANGA. It is worshipped by HINDUS who believe that bathing in the river causes the remission of sins and facilitates MOKSHA (liberation from the cycle of life and death) the water of Ganga is considered very pure. Pilgrims immerse the ASHES OF THEIR KIN in the Ganges, which is considered by them to bring the spirits closer to MOKSHA. SO WHEN THEY DIE IF YOUR FAMILY HAS MONEY YOUR CREMATED BODY GETS DECORATED AND SENT OFF , BUT SAY IF YOUR FAMILY IS BROKE THEY WILL JUST DUMP YOUR REMAININGS INTO THE RIVER .
