Ganga A Divinity In Flow: Experience of Lifetime

Mumbai: In an attempt to unveil’s one spiritual soul, an enduring book ‘GANGA a divinity in flow’ is released today by the superstar of India, Aamir Khan.

This book reflects an idea of personal intimate journey that every Indian can relate to. Three years of extensive travel along the 2,510 km long river-right from the Gangotri Glacier (the source of the river); down to the Ganga Sagar, where it merges into the Bay of Bengal is a visual delight in the book.

The uniqueness of the book is in its approach to the subject. It is not a focus on the popular destinations of Rishikesh, Haridwar and Varanasi. Ganga-a perennial river has played a major role in shaping the history of Indian sub-continent. This river has the unique distinction of representing an entire civilization, a benevolent faith and a culture in it’s entirely.

Over 300 pictures taken by Atul Bhardwaj portray the daily life of millions of people, as the vivacious river flows through their hearts, day after day, sustaining and purifying on esoteric and mundane levels. The inimitable endeavour is reflected in the array of places, people and life around the Divine River, as it grows from gentle streams, flows through the eponymous planes of northern India and is consumed through the vast delta in the Sundarbans.

According to the author, Vijay Singal (IRS Officer) says ‘Through my childhood experience of traveling, I feel it is a god-sent opportunity to express myself a sacred experience through the medium of Ganga

Amitabh Bachchan, icon of Indian cinema who forwarded the book says; ’Ganga a divinity in flow through its vibrant photographs and exhilarating encounters is an outstanding journey along the river. It is also a humble invitation to the people of India to care for and protect the divine legacy’

‘I always wanted to get pondered over the history and geography of the mighty river. I took a camera and got idealistic pictures that depicts emotions of millions of people for the river Ganga’, Atul Bhardwaj, a photographer for this book said.

Ganges draws millions of worshippers from all over the world, who believes their sins get washed out by the touch of the water, by consuming it, or just by pronouncing Ganga. Many considered it as the saviour of the world.
