Our Holy River Ganga’s water is considered very sacred.
Why River Ganga’s waters considered pure ? It is because of her bodyguard.. Yes, River Ganga has a bodyguard, which are the bateriophages contained in her water. A Bacteriophage is a virus that kills harmful bacteria. The bacteriophages in River Ganga kills other harmful bacteria in the water, thereby purifying them. This is scientifically confirmed in recent times. This property of Ganga water is not found in other rivers upto this extent. That is why Ganga Water does not spoil even if stored for years.
Yet, we continue to pollute this sacred river which is very pure and holy. Let’s work towards restoring this Holy river to its previous glory.
