Blessing the Ganga

North-India Uttaranchal Ram Jhula

Buddhist monks blessing the Goddess Ganga as mother of
all life and throwing catfish to keep the river clean.
In the background the Ram Jhula Bridge, build in 1929,
coneecting to the Geeta Bhawan ashrams with the road to Risikech.

The Ganges lost a lot of flow the last years due to
the global warming affecting the eco-system of the
Himalaya which has a direct influence on whole Europe !
