Stretching 855 miles (1,375km) across the north of the country, at its source in the Himalayas its water is crystal clear.
However, once it streams through New Delhi, it turns into one of the filthiest rivers in the world. Rapid urbanisation is partly to blame, but so is lax enforcement of laws against illegal dumping.

Why you always against india to promote west hypocrisy and colonial superior and west to show that what going on our country they promote racialism and even engage war with many countries ex Afghanistan, Syria
Population control at its finest.😍
ummm … 9:32
I don't understand my fellow Indians
Cow mata hai toh sadak pe kyu hai?
Atithi devo bhava lkin tourist safe nhi hai
Bharat mata hai aur bhot saare deviya b pr women safe nhi hai
Nadi bhagwan hai pr clean nhi hai
Jab ye river naalaa ban jayengi tab sudhrenge log
YUCKKKKK! FILTY…. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
Its like eating your food in a plate, but never wash it afterwards. Well its kind of metaphor.
Time to hit the reset button on India.
I thought the ganga was
Brink back the Raj
The goddess of garbage water
No wonder they have children with two heads or three eyes and teeth on their elbows.

i wouldnt expect anything else from the ''people'' that, to put it nicely, open defecate
what a beautiful culture🙂
the symptom of weak government. us indians only love in religion but doesnt practice whats said in their own holy book. and the leaders love to create only violence and hatred, but i believe somehow our country is moving forward by inches
If everyone just helped clean it and left it alone for a year it would be clean within a year.
Long live slumdog
Bathing in that foulness is disgusting.
I know price is a factor for drinking water, so this is a genuine question. Is mesh filtering and boiling the water not an option? I know its not clear of impurities finer than the mesh but it should be lean enough to get rid of most waterborne illness
what a time to be alive, one big giant Toilet for public use and at the same time a trash can for everyone, at least build a barrier to cover you shittin everywhere, it is sickening how they are not ashamed to do that publicly
"You have to let us move your country"
I almost died laughing at 6:30 when he said people aren't able to walk properly and the footage shows the poor old man minding his own business walking like that.
I’m sorry but all of India seem like a giant garbage dump. How can these people do this to there land. No respect no consideration
All I hear from these people is "Someone must be held accountable". Finger pointing everywhere without proper action.
It is a tragedy. I don't see why the world leaders haven't taken more steps to stop the pollution of our earth. How much damage will this do after 100 years and with the population growing out of control
Cleaning is so important how come y’all don’t clean the bathrooms at the gas station?
these people are clueless
this channel is literally the face of " western media "
What a shame
Pada likha gadha
They don't care, I don't care
Any1 tell me why that guy drew a swastika on the brick?
Disgusting third world sh*thole.
No sanitation. No water treatment plants. Nothing. Disgusting.
I’m not having online arguments against these people
Why don’t the Indian government clean the river they’ve got the money
why are we giving money to countries for weapons and the like? if we need to give money it should be to fix issues like this. we're all humans and if we're all happy, that means bliss
Shame on Our people for making Such a huge mess in environment which could be avoided easily…🤦🏻♂️
Imagine we as an indian cant keep our rivers clean then what else we can do.
Gee they look like a bunch a super healthy individualsz
Indians doing indian things
You can almost smell the Hepatitis A. If only they cared about the water as much as their religion….So the town with dirty water because the government doesnt clean the one orange filter for the town cant just do it themselves? I mean, it cant be rocket science and theyve had 5 years, he said, to figure it out, its not even in a completely locked up area, just a small fence… I dont know, if a town needs clean water and see that there is a dirty filter system not working, maybe just try to do it yourself? I think we should all go do a ceremonial river bank poopoo time to make it better. Note to self, never take a barefoot river side stroll in India.
Cmon brother India, keep it together .. clean the water from pollutions !
