However, once it streams through New Delhi, it turns into one of the filthiest rivers in the world. Rapid urbanisation is partly to blame, but so is lax enforcement of laws against illegal dumping

You're speaking Hindi when you say 'swastika' so that argument is not so stable. For Millennia (thousands of years) Hindus have used this symbol only 75/80 years ago (very recently in the passage of time) Hitler read a lot on Hinduism & stole the symbol a logo for his reign. India it is seen everywhere before & after silly man with silly face furniture.
They keep on having faith in their gods that does not actually help them but not seeing what us happening and they keep on believing all that is happening has a connection to their prosperity and health
Doesn't make any sense they want clean water then keep throwing garbage at the river dont have any self decipline and just a bit of that common sense. I love nature and I want to drink clean water see Japan this people are need to be more educated. Anyhows what comes around goes around.
Solution solved, take out your corrupted government control by greedy rich people whose running ur life. Start a revolution end hungers. If you going to die, die trying instead of suffering from hunger.
India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and yet it's rivers and streets are strewn with filth. To think that people actually bath and drink this toxic cocktail of industrial and human effluence simply beggars belief.
This comment section kills me all the time.😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂!!! Every country has their problems..yes some countries might be better off in terms of hygiene,living qualities,jobs etc!!! But that doesn't compare to the fact that its a major issue everywhere..so instead of people depending on their government to do everything...the people of those same areas.should come together and cooperate.. Better will be done..but some people just are according to the dependency ratio...I don't think one should feel offended when being told about their dirtiness. Instead they should try to do better..not only for the benefits of others but for themselves also...!!! 😊😊😊
Seeing others comment that India is the most disgusting country fine ! But if you have been to South India especially Coorg and Ooty you would understand that it is the cleanest please stop ✋ hate commenting if you have a problem with it better shut your mouth 🤐 and nobody asked for your reviews people im replying because of your hate comments as an Indian I am ashamed but not all of India is dirty.
Indian government could create a lot of jobs keeping the river clean, cleaning the land. They could try making cremation more affordable with all that nuclear they have... Revolutionize cremation and make it cheap so people don't throw half burned bodies in the river. I guess focusing of nuclear weapons an jacking off is good enough.
Yamuna is Krishna's sakhi and Ganga's sister according to Hindu mythology. Krishna is said to have fallen in love with Kalindi, and used to roam on its banks. And look at the river now. If only Hindus corrected their behavior, India would have been an entirely different place. :(
It's funny how quick people are when it comes to judging other countries. There are pros and cons of every country. This video shows one of the worst problems in India, in extremely rural and backward places. The entirety of India obviously isn't like this dumb fucks.
Over population scares me. There are Indians that care and would like to clean up. Unfortunately they can't keep up with all the people that don't care and eventually lose hope and become part of the problem themselves.
Really Yamuna is most polluted river. I don't know what our Delhi govt is doing. They must make a saprete way for thus factory chemical, dust and dirt. I am from Rajasthan and I really hope our Delhi people's do something good thing for saving this river. I know there are already many NGO working but we must pressure on our government to save this holly river. Really very painful.
Well I'm an Indian. But must say that it's these people living there are the main reason for this tragedy. It's a serious problem not only for humans as well as for every living being near to the river. Government and citizens of these areas should've to work together in order to giving second chance to the river and themselves too.
The problem is overpopulation. There are way too many indians, so obviously their country can't hold up with all the waste they produce, which ends up in nature. India needs a one child policy and also promote birth control. Otherwise our world will be overrun by indians, i mean look at canada and UK, its a indian colony at this point.
india is last place i woud want to visit .......too dirty , weird,many scavengers ,thiefs........look at their faces , they expect u to turn back and they hit u for your money .......it is a lost cause.
