This is a program to highlight the importance of river as an organic and cultural entity. Humanity owe a lot towards rivers. They are not just a source of water, but the source of creativity, culture, civilization and even spiritual traditions. From time immemorial, Hindus revered rivers as manifestations of the divinity. They not only purify the bodies, but also the minds, intellects and the spirit.
