River Ganga or the Ganges is the river of India,it's a life giver,and savior for the indian people.It attracts millions for reasons of their own.Some flock it's banks in the hope of salvation while some come to heal their bodies and some just visit to admire it's beauty.This mystic river demands the respect of the natives like no other river in the region.It is the most important of the five major rivers in the Indian subcontinent.The group of five rivers which provide life to the Indian lands is commonly known as the panch nadi.It is respectfully and affectionately called Ganga mayya or Mother Ganga.This is what India's first prime minister Pandit Nehru noted in his book about the Ganges.
" The Ganga, especially, is the river of India, beloved of her
people, round which are intertwined her memories, her hopes
and fears, her songs of triumph, her victories and her
defeats. She has been a symbol of India's age-long culture
and civilization, ever changing, ever flowing, and yet ever
the same Ganga"- From book 'Discovery of India' by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru (first prime minister of India)
