"River March"- A citizens movement to reclaim Mumbai's 4 beautiful rivers.
Students of St Dominic Savio High School along with several other schools and citizens took part in "The River March" at Mithi,BKC.
Our students were shocked to know that what they smelt and saw was the river! They carried placards and distributed hand written messages to spread awareness among the many curious people we passed. The stark contrast between the plush BKC and the sorry, stinking Mithi, the poverty felt unsettling.
We were around 1,000 participants who assembled at BKC.
In all around 10,000 citizens have participated in this River March across Mumbai's 4 rivers ( or should we say currently reduced to sewers)….. Dahisar, Poisar, Mithi & Oshiwara.
