Dear Indian, STOP THIS BRUTAL MURDER!!!! The Holy River Yamuna is Calling Out For Help !! Do You Know - The world Health Organization (WHO) has declared our holy Yamuna River a "Dead River" beyond New Delhi, well before it enters the Land of Shri Krishna. ( Please do see the attachment for the sad details with graphic explanation) A note on how to kill a river again and again? (And also how it still can be saved)
• A river is a natural watercourse flowing towards an ocean, a lake, a sea, or another river. Killing it is a simple task. • Take away its waters and hence its flow. • Pollute it (contaminate its natural freshness).¬ • Take away more waters (pollute it even more for lack of dilution capacity) • Pollute it further • Keep repeating the above (nobody bothers) • Not a drop of fresh water from Yamunotri is allowed to flow on Delhi’s Yamuna river bed... (November to May) • Only sewage is made to flow on Yamuna... • In Vrindavan, Mathura AND Agra ... Only sewage water from Delhi flows into Yamuna... This is what the The Central Pollution Control Board says in its report - WATER QUALITY STATUS OF YAMUNA RIVER (1999 – 2005) on its official website. “ From Wazirabad barrage no water is allowed to flow down particularly during summer, as the available water in the river is not adequate to fulfill the water supply demand of Delhi. The water flows in the Yamuna River downstream of Wazirabad is the treated, partially treated or untreated domestic & industrial waste-water contributed by various drains joining river Yamuna and canal water. After 22 km downstream from Wazirabad barrage the Yamuna water is again blocked and diverted into Agra Canal for irrigation through another barrage at Okhla. At downstream Okhla barrage the water flows in the river is the drain water of domestic & industrial origin contributed mainly by Shahdara drain. After traveling a distance of around 166 km, the river reaches at Mathura from where again a major part of water is diverted for drinking water supply through Gokul barrage.” Please refer to the attached map. It shall easily explain that what flows through Braj-Vrindavan is nothing but Industrial and Domestic Sewage of Delhi (not one drop of Original Yamuna River.) This is true for 8-9 months a year other than monsoons when there is too much water and hence dilution. Our Demand: LET THE SACRED AND NATURAL FRESH WATERS OF YAMUNA FLOW THROUGH ITS STRETCH WITHOUT MIXING OF POLLUTION (TREATED OR UNTREATED), AS A RIVER SHOULD FLOW!

Thank you so much for the invaluable service you have provided in making all this nectar available in one stop listening format; the world's consciousness awareness of such facility may be lifetimes in appreciating its true worth, but hearing Srila Prabhupada's timeless wisdom presented from so many modern day sadhus cannot have an affixed value, and is, hence, indeed, "Matchless Gifts"
I donate to IDT because it has consistently helped me stay closely connected to Shri Guru and Vaishnavas by hearing (shravanam). I live in the US and the nearest ISKCON temple is over 3 hours away. But I download lectures on my iPod and listen to the lectures regularly to maintain a spiritual consciousness. New lectures are available on IDT pretty quickly too.
