Charlie Visits the River of Compassion

Travel the River of Compassion

The Ganges River is the mother of India, yet she is endangered by pollution. Meet Swamiji Muni Baba and other great Indian minds who refuse to let her die. 

The Ganges is a sacred river to Hindus and the embodiment of all sacred waters in Hinduism. You can find people in ritual bathings, offering flower petals, and paying homage to this great river wherever it flows. But pollution threatens to destroy it.

Travel with Charlie to the River of Compassion in this short film, and learn more about the MC Mehta Environmental Foundation, an NGO “working nationwide for the protection of the environment, the rights of the people to clean and fresh water and air, the promotion of sustainable development, and the protection of the cultural heritage of India.”
