Someone save my state. Please!!!

The missing rivers: The saints and devotees refused to take a bath in Sangam this year due to extremely high level of pollution in the holy rivers. What a shame! We are a nation of more than (supposedly) 330 million deities and this is what we have made of two of our greatest and holiest rivers. And the rate at which Gangotri and Yamnotri glaciers are melting, we may not have these rivers for long.

Why don't VHP and RSS make failure of Ganga and Yamuna Action Plans an issue? Why don't they protest against factory owners who are dumping untreated effluents out in the rivers, and the officials are letting them do so? With the wide reach these organizations have got, it would be much better for country (and Hindus also!) if they could educate people in protecting the environment. But will they?


Any comments, Mr Bachchan? Did you know who are the biggest supporters of Saddam Hussain? No it's not the sunni community of Iraq, not Al-Qaida either. The honour goes to the leaders and party workers of Samajwadi Party in UP. They were protesting against hanging of Saddam Hussain in Agra and attacked a tourist bus. The police said that action will be taken against miscreants, but you don't need to be Sherlock Holmes to understand that no officer would want his job in the line of fire, by acting against members of ruling party.

I wonder why nobody asks Mr. Amitabh Bachchan about his opinion on these matters of lawless ness in Uttar Pradesh. After all he is modelling for Samajwadi Party in UP and has 'family relations' with Amar Singh and Mulayam Singh Yadav! If we can have Amir Khan in the dock on cola-pesticide issue, then why not Mr. Bachchan?

nice article
but looks only nice....but cannot be implemented till this world exists....
i agree with ur thoughts and appreciate it also...
But dude, Do u justify ur thoughts with some suggestion or solution to the problem?
and Amitji cann't comment on these issues as he can only promote and support...( he is not a politician).
waise bhi He is Very Buzy with his Son's Marriage ( Congrats Aby and Aish )
These kind of issues can be only be highlighted (4 sometime) but cann't get ny result out of it....

I haven't raised any problem which doesn't have solution. Cleaning or protecting our rivers with the help of Stricter Laws is not impossible. Nor is raising awareness about environment conservation. Definitely socio-political outfits like VHP/RSS can do it, if they wish to.
And if Amitji is promoting state, definitely he can be asked about his views. We know he can't do anything!

I agree with you Abhishek, but can't you take this issue further?? like giving your thoughts to a newspaper or magazine?? this is a very relevant point and if we can do something about it we should.....
