The Beas River is the largest tributary of the Indus River and flows through northwest India and Pakistan. The river starts in Himachal Pradesh state, crosses into Jammu and Kashmir state, then moves to Punjab Province in Pakistan before bifurcating back into Indian Territory at Kullu near Parvati Valley. It was once considered one of the most unspoiled rivers but has been impacted by mining, hydroelectric dams, pollution from agricultural runoff, human waste dumping and other sources. One such source is a major drug manufacturing company which dumps its chemicals directly into the river.

The Satluj River, also known as the “Sutlej”, is a major river that flows through northern India and Pakistan. The Sutlej originates in Tibet, China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. It joins with the Beas River at Harike Barrage near Amritsar in India before flowing into Pakistani Punjab.
This river irrigates much of Northern India and provides water to many towns and cities along its route (e.g., Amritsar, Lahore). Unfortunately, this river has become polluted due to increased population growth within its watershed region; for example, runoff from farms can release fertilizers which lead to eutrophication problems downstream
The Chenab River is a tributary of the Indus River, flowing for about 1,180 km. It starts in Himalayan glaciers and flows through Jammu and Kashmir. The river has been called one of the most dangerous rivers in India because it floods every year.
The Chenab River supplies irrigation water to many industries that are situated on its banks or near by, including rice mills, sugar mills, paper mills etc.
But these days with so much pollution being dumped into it from factories upstream there is barely any fish left alive in the river. Some people have tried to clean up this mess but they have not had much success because their resources are limited due to lack of funding.
The Yamuna River is one of the most important rivers in India. It flows through the states of Uttarakhand, Haryana, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. The river has been worshipped by Hindus for thousands of years as a goddess called “Yamuna Devi” or Bhagvati.
The Yamuna River is now under threat due to pollution from industrial waste and sewage which makes it unfit for drinking water use, leading to health problems among people who rely on the river’s waters for their daily needs. Luckily there are efforts being made to clean up this beautiful body of water so that it may once again be used safely by all those who live near its banks!
Since I am a Ravi River, it is my duty to help people who do not know about the river. This blog post will be about what the Ravi River is and why it’s important.
Ravi River: The Ravi River or Hiranwati (Hindi lit., “golden water”) rises in Tibet as the Phung Chu and enters India near Shipki La pass on the Ladakh-Tibet border with an average elevation of 16,000 ft./5,000 m above sea level. It flows through Himachal Pradesh for 555 km before entering Pakistan at Mirpur Khas where its name changes to Sutlej. From there it traverses Punjab and joins Chenab at Uch
