“This is not a protest nor is this an agitation. This is the campaign to raise awareness that our rivers are depleting. Everyone who consumes water must rally for rivers” says Sadhguru. “As citizens of India, we need to express our responsibility and change the existing situation of our rivers. How our parents have left the rivers for us, at least that much we should restore before we leave. For the wellbeing of the nation, for future generations and for our generation, let’s stand up and make this happen,” he added.
