Ganges River Pollution

Photograph by Tushar Sharma, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Environment

This shot was taken at Varanasi, India. A boat man still sleeping in the morning and the boats created a splendid formation. I was shocked that pollution from tourists throwing garbage and plastic waste into the River Ganges is slowly killing the environment.
