Subject: Informing about the present scenario of river Hooghly and suggesting steps to rejuvenate it.

Respected Sir,

I want to express my views and grievances about the present mourning scenario about river Ganga, which is locally known as Hooghly thorough your esteemed column. As we all know river is considered sacred and holy in our Indian culture. It is also the backbone of Indian economy as many people earn their livelihood depending on river. As India is a country based on agriculture, river plays an inevitable role to keep pace in this sector. But it is very much concerning and painful that like many other rivers in India, Hooghly has also lost its own entity due to high level of pollution.

Industrialization is one of the most important part to improve the economical background of the common people. To enhance the industrial sector many petro-chemical institutes, oil factories and other industrial set ups are being established on the bank of the river. But the government and the respective authorities are not careful enough to take precautions to save the river. Huge amount of industrial waste are mixing with the water of the river regularly and polluting the water of the river.

Union government has initiated many projects like Swachch Bharat Mission, Namami Gange projects to keep rivers and our cities clean. But these initiatives are not enough to save the life and sacredness of the rivers. They have to direct the industrial authorities to manage their industrial waste in such a way that they cannot mix with the water of the river and pollute it. Most importantly common people have to be more careful and more concern to keep the life of their city clean and pollution free. I hope my attempt will be fruitful to drag the attention of the concerning authorities regarding this burning problem.

Thanking you.

Yours faithfully,
