The Ganga begins her journey here at Devprayag


We never remained vigilant

So we let thunderous waves

of foreign invasions-

crush us-

we were looted-

got ourselves


now look at the confluence

of Bhagirathi and Alakananda

where the beautiful Ganga comes alive-

we are still not vigilant-

so we let the turquoise Ganga weep

till She is noir

before She pours Herself into the sea-
