River Goddess Ganga - SCULPTURE ON SALE ONLINE »

Calcutta, Jan 18, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Ganga, the river or the goddess, or the river-goddess, a divine emergence: bounty of gods, or a mere geological phenomenon: result of a series of physical disturbances in Himalayan region, timed or the timeless, is now for ages core of faith of millions of Indians, north and south and east and west, and beyond.

Ganga is a river beyond, and a spiritual realisation within - truer and more convincing.
