an opportunity to serve ganga
Over the years, the constant use of Ghats, lack of maintenance, inappropriate repair works of the Ghat structures has spoilt the whole interface. The spaces which were primarily used and built for purposes like meditation, worship, appreciation of nature are now eroded by increased commercial activities. The regular surfacing of slums along the stretch has become a huge source of dump which when assembled in major quantities poses a resistance to the river from flowing and sometimes this may also result in receding of the river.
Cleaning of Ghats may be taken up by organising local people, local NGOs, Professional Agency etc. to take up cleaning activities with the help of local bodies. Though cleaning works are extremely important, the task of removal of the waste is equally crucial. It should be ensured that the collected waste does not go into the river and therefore a strong co-ordination with the local bodies is important.
