when it comes to environment callousness, the sector that ranks right next to politicians and industrialists are the religious people.

so only you have the mighty ganges gets slammed by pollution during every religious festival, when our forests are being pressurised to be opened more and more for religious worship without caring for the crucial forest ecology of that region, etc.

the recent case of religious convention held in pathanamthitta is a classic case. it seems after the religious convention was held the pampa riverbed looked like a municipal waste-dumping yard.

guess the religious people gave the river god a good bye while worshipping for the heavenly gods.

when it comes to religious worship, it looks blindsided just like development in india is. and crucial rivers like pampa are getting killed day in and day out making it unfit for human consumption and use.
