The water of the Ganges River is NOT pure. The Ganges River is the most polluted river in the entire world. The Ganges river has been considered one of the dirtiest rivers in the world. The extreme pollution of the Ganges affects 400 million people who live close to the river. The river waters start getting polluted right at the source.

Along the 4 miles (6.4 kilometres) stretch of terraced bathing ghats in the holy city of Varanasi, the water of the Ganges is a \"brown soup of excrement and industrial effluents.\" The water there contains 60,000 faecal coliform bacteria per 100 ml, 120 times the official limit of 500 faecal coliforms/100ml that is not considered safe for bathing. This is absolutely gross!!!!

How can a river possibly purify you when it is polluted and contaminated with billions of germs and other terrible & toxic pollutants? Your country, India, really needs to clean up this \"River of India\".
