Ever wondered what a River is? And where does all the water in the river comes from, and goes to? Let us follow the journey of river Ganga in India, and see for ourselves!!
River Ganga, the most sacred river of India is one of the Himalayan Rivers that originates in Gangotri in Himalayas and flows through cities in the northern plain. This river is worshipped as Goddess Ganga. It is believed that by taking a bath in River Ganga, one can be freed from one's sins. Many holy cities are located on the banks of river Ganga and hence it is the most worshipped river.
Ironically, it is one of the highest polluted rivers too. Not only humans but a range of water species are also on a threat.
Through this DIY kit, trace the journey of River Ganga and see how the surroundings along the bank of River change as it flows from Gangotri Glacier in Himalayas till Sundarbans where it drains into the Bay of Bengal in the East.
Potli, the organization behind the series of art, craft and architecture kits aims to reconnect children with Indian heritage through Indian traditional art, craft and history, thereby creating awareness and expanding markets for artisans community that depend on their art form for livelihood.
