New series on DD News to highlight ecological threats to river Ganga

NEW DELHI: ‘Taaki Bahti Rahe Ganga,’ a show that traces the course of the holy river Ganga from its source Gangotri to Gangasagar even as it conveys the message of keeping the waters clean and pure, has been launched by DD News.

The six-episode documentary which commenced telecast from 6 July, will be aired every Sunday at 9:30 pm with a repeat telecast on Monday at 3:30pm. It is documentation by three reporters who have made an effort to make it interactive.

They have interviewed and taken opinions of those who are living on the bank of the river in different parts of the country. The reporters have also taken views of scientists, environmentalists, religious leaders and policy makers and this helped them get to the root cause of issues like pollution, erosion, floods, unregulated urbanisation, mindless development and encroachment along Ganga.

The channel has made this documentary series to activate the people on the banks where it flows into taking care of river waters which give them so much.

DD News DG S M Khan said, “This is not a generic show which only talks about the matter-of-the-fact problems but deals with pulsating problems pertaining to specific regions. For example, in Uttarakhand, the focus is on the factors affecting the flow of the river while pollution and health issues dominate the discussion in Uttar Pradesh and the main concern in Bihar and Bengal is over pollution and erosion.”

Doordarshan News is giving high priority to creating awareness about the problems concerning the holy river of the country and is generating participation of people to address the problems.
