"Clean Ganga, Prosperous India" foot march by Acharya Neeraj from Gomukh to Gangasagar (6th May 2010 to 2nd October 2010)

Uttar Pradesh, India

Acharya Neeraj is going to do a foot march from Gomukh to Gangasagar, almost 3000 kms long, covering 4 states and more than 30 districts. The Foot March will start on 6th May 2010 and finish on 2nd October 2010.

Acharya Neeraj was a student leader in Lucknow University and wanted to become a MP in the Indian Parliament. However Neeraj says that with time, he realized that India needs basic changes for social transformation. He spent time in the Himalaya to understand the Vedant Teachings.

Neeraj spoke with GRI and said that he wants to do this foot march for peace, brotherhood and to save the Ganga mata (the Ganga Mother). He said that if the Ganga will be clean and not interfered with by humans, then India will become a prosperous nation.

During the foot march, around 50 people from various social organizations have promised to walk with him. Villagers will be motivated to plant and grow five holy Trees, PEEPAL, PAKAR, BARGAD, GULAR and AAM.

GRI will try to cover this foot march as it progresses in the coming editions of GRI monthly.
