Like all other rivers of India, Ganga is not only river but it is Divine River and more popularly known as ‘Mother Ganga’ or ‘Ganga Maiya.’ And, it is truly presented in the book “Ganga a Divinity in Flow” authored by well known writer Mr. Vijay Singal. In his book, Mr. Singal says “Ganga is divinity in flow, personification of piousness, symbol of life and emancipator of mankind. Though related to the great gods of Hindu Trinity in one way or the other, Ganga is considered as a goddess in her own right.”
