Gangajal in Karnataka

When Muzrai minister Krishnaiah Setty wants to make this year’s Shivaratri celebrations unique. Two tankers carrying 50,000 litres of Gangajal, collected from Laksman Jula near Rishikesh, reached Bangalore on Sunday.

The vehicles carrying the Gangajal reached all taluks yesterday evening. Each taluk got 100-150 litres of the holy water, depending on the number of temples. The devotees will be offered Gangajal after abhisheka to Lord Shiva on Monday evening. As many as 1,500 temples have been identified for the distribution of the holy water.

The minister said not even a single paisa of the state exchequer was spent for the purpose. One of his friends managed the expenses. “I don’t know how much is being spent. Along with the Gangajal, the minister will also distribute 6 lakh calendars, brought out specially for Shivarathri, to the devotees. Setty has printed the calendars at his own expense.
Setty had distributed laddus from Tirupati during  Vaikuntha Ekadashi.

When everybody is excited about the Gangajal, a mail on the Ganga river is making rounds and I too received it. The pictures speak for themselves.

    Indians.. have got everything in abundance, but we have always exploited it. Water flowing in Ganga river is beleaved to be pure, this is proved true ‘not by Indians’ but by researchers who wanted to know why is it so !, they were not Indians. ..

    We should atleast wakeup now.. its been thousands of years.. we still don’t get the facts accepted.

    Incredeble Indians !

    मुझे ये देख कर बहुत दु: हुआ की यहां मरने के बाद भी इंसान की ये द्रुगती होती है। सही मानो में मुझे ये देख कर लगा की मानो गंगा सही में दुशीत हो गई है।
