Amar Chitra Katha: Ganga

Anant Pai


"Mythology is not all fact, we know, but yet, in its vast poetic exaggerations, one can always trace an outline of truth. The presence of the Rajasthan desert, in close proximity to the indo-Gangetic plain makes it plausible that perhaps there was a time when there was no Ganga in India. It is not difficult then to visualize what agonies the people there must have suffered without the blessed water. If that had been so, then Bhagiratha’s task of bringing Ganga to earth was indeed a colossal one, and one that merits all that has been sung and said about it in the epics. "
