Yamuna in Delhi covers a distance of 22 km from the Wazirabad dam to Okhla barrage. Between these two points, 18 different drains fall into the river, 16 directly and 4 from the Agra and Gurgaon canal. In spite of being heavily polluted, the river banks remain comfortably populated. A large number of people depend on the river for their residential, commercial and spiritual purposes, apart from drainage, of course. I am kick-starting a photography project to trace the two faces of this river – ‘Divine’ and ‘Drain’. This project is an attempt to feature the lives Yamuna supports as it dies in the city.
Join me in this initiative and help Yamuna live.
