The holy river Ganga–the Ganges– is now dirty. It's polluted.
You can see people taking holy bath in the ghats. In the meantime, you can see people peeing there.
People spitting in the river, people washing there clothes, people washing there ass after defaecating!
Buffaloes in the river, men in the river!
Hindus consider water of the Ganges holy and use that in different occassions in different rituals.
But being a Hindu, truly speaking, I did not take bath in the Ganges. And I think I won't do that.
