Gayatri Pariwar Aiming to Clean the Entire River Ganga

Gayatri Pariwar is conducting a survey to find out the best means to clean the entire 2,525-km stretch of Ganga River in India. Gayatri Parivar has already started cleaning Ganga in certain cities and towns but they feel it is not enough.

All World Gayatri Pariwar is a family, based on India's basic philosophy of "Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam" i.e. "Global Family. The organization is based on the teachings of Yug-Rishi Res. Gurudev Pt. Shriram Sharma and Mataji (his wife) Res. Bhagvati Devi Sharma both worked on this philosophy throughout their life.

 The Gayatri Parivar has already begun cleaning the river in patches all across the country but it feels this is not enough. The entire stretch has to be given a facelift -- at one go if possible.  
"It will be a hugely challenging task, but this is our dream," explained Kedar Prasad Dubey, a former State Bank of India officer who is one of the key persons involved in the project.  
Dubey said the survey would find out the number of ghats along the river, the extent of pollution and the number of volunteers needed for what would be an unprecedented enterprise. 
"We will also create public awareness on the necessity to keep the Ganges clean and litter-free," Dubey told a news agency.
