Hindu religious places - high pollution of water bodies!
The government s lack sense of swatchta as they fail to pull up the local authorities like temple boards, endowment department, municipalities,pilgrims in general.
My recent visit to Rameswaram two days ago I saw that the Sea flowing next to temple was black, frothing, with floating clothes, Pooja left overs , plastic bottles and sewage.The streets around was pot holed with garbage strewn around and the bylanes were like swamps after a little rain.
Local people make money,govt makes money ,temple makes money but the swatchata is gone for a toss.
I also observed this in all TN temples big ,gigantic heritage icons of bygone era smelling of urine ,feces, unswept and corruption is rampant.
Mantralaya in AP has similar situation, Varanasi, Allahabad, Nashik, Haridwar in all places the religion is calling for swatchata of minds , body and water bodies including sea.
We talk of future Ram Mandirs to be built but what about the existing ones badly needing attention?
We are ashamed ! more
