There is an Instagram user – ‘earthworri‘ who had repeatedly spread awareness among people about the ‘situation’ of the Holy Yamuna River and also the Holy Ganga River, how constant pollutants in form of sewage, plastics, things from holy rituals and people’s unheeding have led to the destruction of total ecosystem of the Whole Water System of India and how it will cause mayhem in the not so far future.

But the flood also had a silver lining. The floodwaters helped to flush out pollution that has accumulated in the Yamuna river over the years. This is a major victory for the environment, as the Yamuna is one of the most polluted rivers in the world.

The floodwaters also deposited silt on the riverbed, which will help to improve the river’s ecology. This will create a more healthy environment for fish and other aquatic life.

The recent flood is a reminder that nature is a powerful force. But it is also a reminder that nature is resilient. The Yamuna river has been through many floods over the centuries, and it has always recovered. This is a hopeful sign that the Yamuna will recover from this latest flood as well.

These incidents remind us of the power of nature and the importance of being prepared for natural disasters.

The Yamuna flood is a reminder of this. We need to be more careful about how we treat our environment, or we will continue to suffer the consequences.

But even in the midst of disaster, there are always stories of hope and resilience. The thrilling incidents from the Yamuna flood are a testament to the power of the human spirit. They show us that even when faced with overwhelming odds, we can still find ways to survive and thrive.



So, as we reflect on the Yamuna flood, let us remember both the lessons it teaches us and the stories of hope it inspires. Let us resolve to do better in the future, and let us never forget the power of nature.

"The Earth is groaning for redemption. We must do our part to heal it." - Romans 8:22


Nature is a force to be reckoned with. She can be both beautiful and destructive. But she is always there, and she always has the last word.

So, let us treat her with respect. Let us not take her for granted. Let us not pollute her. Let us not destroy her.

Because if we do, she will not hesitate to return the favor.



The choice is ours.
