Madhu Ramaswamy follows up after several people expressed their appreciation of this series on the blog https://www.indiawaterportal.org/blog/index.php/2007/10/28/ganges-three-part-series-on-the-discovery-channel/ Our posting about Discovery Channel's television series 'Ganges' has attracted several responses from readers, some of whom are under the mistaken impression that we are associated with the series. We would like to clarify that India Water Portal was merely drawing viewers' attention to this highly interesting series. We are not (alas!) involved in its production. We'd like to hear from blog readers their thoughts about the series. We're also trying to contact Discovery ourselves. Viewers who wish to send in their comments on the series could also get in touch with Discovery Channel directly at this link: (http://www.discoverychannel.co.in/india/contact.htm) For an understanding of our role and activities in the water sector, please see our weblink: https://www.indiawaterportal.org/about/ According to the Discovery Channel website, the series will continue to air on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday next week.
