Government plans to set up the Ganga Museum
Ganga, the holy river of India, is worshiped as the river of gods. Every year, millions of people take a dip and believe that taking a dip in this sacred river can purify their souls from all sin.
But for a long time, India has been trying to think of how to clean the Ganga. Because of millions of people visiting this holy river, the water now looks dirty.
It is so crucial to India that many consider it their duty to keep the sacred river pure and clean.
The National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) has organised a two-day workshop on the name of developing a Ganga museum concept. The main goal is to encourage public participation in cleaning the holy river. For that, NMCG is trying to reach the public in all possible ways.
“We’ve organised a two-day international workshop for the development of a concept of the Ganga Museum,” said UP Singh, the Secretary of Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation.
The primary motive to organise this event is to get the international expertise. Experts from all over the world are invited to pitch their ideas on this project.
German Museum Expert Hans-Jorg Czech said, “It was an exciting process to discuss the vision and the mission, the different ways to realise the Ganga Museum project. The idea itself to plan a museum is a fantastic thing, and it has so many chances to express the significant aspects of the river Ganga to people.
