Moving Upstream: Ganga

The Ganga basin accounts for 26% of the Indian land mass and serves 40% of the country’s population. With the importance that this river basin holds in the country, it was clear that we needed to start from the obvious – the main stem of River Ganga and then work towards getting the forgotten into the mainstream.

As part of our Moving Upstream: Ganga project, we walked along the river Ganga for almost 3000kms, from the ocean to the mountains, while capturing a very personal narrative of the Ganga and stories of the people who affect and are affected by it. This was the first in a series of research and documentation journeys that we have undertaken along different rivers of India.

We’re always looking to collaborate with good people (athletes, artists, techies, social or media organisations, etc) for our projects, and if this interests you in any manner please write to us at [email protected]
