NPR’s Ganges series

It’s hard to visit India and not see the Ganges River. Not just at the holy city of Varanasi, the river plays a fundamental role in daily life in India. And it’s not just ritual and religion; the Ganges handles a lot of the day-to-day washing and waste removal of northern India. And it’s also drinking water for millions.

In a very good 5-part series that covers 1550 miles, NPR’s Philip Reeves journeys along the Ganges.
