Ganges – Documentary (BBC Series) 

This sumptuous series tells the story of the most extraordinary river in the world – the Ganges. Gang Ma or Great Mother is the holiest river in the world. This dramatic BBC documentary is a vibrant and colourful look at how the Ganges shaped the wildlife, culture and beliefs of India.

From man-hunting tigers to giant lizards, in Ganges the wildlife encountered is as diverse as the people.
The Ganges River, rising from the pure glacial meltwaters of the Himalayas, flows down onto India’s Northern Plain, through frenetic cities to the teeming delta where the river meets the sea. Human life and nature bustle along her river banks, in a kaleidoscope of colour and energy. A fantastic documentary with breathtaking imagery and an excellent narration.

A Tribute to Devbhoomi Uttarakhand

Uttarakhand is known as Dev Bhoomi – “The Land of the Gods” – because of the presence of a multitude of spiritual powerspots and pilgrimage destinations. 

Uttarakhand is the name of the state that was formed from the hill districts of Uttar Pradesh, India. Literally North Country or Section in Sanskrit, the name of Uttarakhand finds mention in the early Hindu scriptures as the combined region of Kedarkhand and Manaskhand. Uttarakhand was also the ancient Puranic term for the central stretch of the Indian Himalayas. Its peaks and valleys were well known in ancient times as the abode of gods and goddesses – and source of the River Ganga (or Ganges). source: Wikipedia. Documentary ca. 4 minutes:
