Why is it important?
As water is a most important element of our life, it is important to find out the actual scenario of the river which gives us a new life by providing the various aspects of social life. It is related to our health sector. Our findings show that the polluted water from the river is infecting men, women and children in every possible way. Water is the most essential requirement to perform household chores, which are done by women and hence they are more prone to diseases caused by polluted water. Because of the poor economic status, they have no other option rather than using this water for their day to day activities. Proper initiatives by the government, awareness among people, disseminating news of this polluted river, constructing deep tube wells and availability of alternative uses of water are measured by which people can be saved from problems being caused by polluted water.
