Indian Boy Swimming Through Sea of Plastic

Here’s a disturbing photo of a boy swimming in the Sabarmati River. Many religious festivals and customs in India involve throwing “offerings” (often nonbiodegradable pollutants) into the rivers and seas.

India is a place of stunning natural beauty, but sadly most of these places are piled high with trash. Its tough to fathom why people choose to worship their precious water sources by polluting them beyond repair.
