River

A river is a natural source of fresh water which is flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river. In some cases, a river flows into the ground and becomes dry at the end of its course without reaching another body of water.

A river forms from water moving from a higher elevation to a lower elevation, all due to gravity.

Indian Cities on the River Banks

The rivers of India play an important role in the lives of the Indian people. Rivers provide irrigation, drinking water, cheap transportation, electricity, as well as provide livelihoods for a large number of people all over the country.

Rivers carry water and nutrients to areas all around the earth. They play a very important part in the water cycle, acting as drainage channels for surface water.

Rivers drain nearly 75% of the earth’s land surface. Rivers provide excellent habitat and food for many of the earth’s organisms.

This easily explains why nearly all the major cities of India are located by the banks of rivers.

The rivers also have an important role in Hindu Religion and are considered holy by all Hindus in the country.
