Indian Rivers ~ Sharadha Srinivasan

India is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations—the Indus Valley Civilization. India is also home to many rivers of mythological and historical importance, which continue to serve the vast Indian population. With global environmental problems threatening to wreck havoc, India’s rivers too will fall victim unless we take measures to protect them. The power point presentation that follows provides a brief overview of some of India’s major rivers and India’s river based civilizations. The teacher can use this presentation to not only teach children about India’s rivers but also to get them to think of the problems facing some of our rivers—the pollution in the Ganges, for instance or the repercussions of the Sardar Sarovar Dam across the Narmada—and generate a discussion.
