INDIANS '' '''

WITH ALMIGHTY GOD'S WILL AND BLESSINGS a new era, a better world dawns, for the region and the world.

The bitter truth Salman Khan, Arshana Jee, and Kapoo Sharma is that this region is burdened with questions and sufferings.

Few leaders could transcend their 'political hot spots' and seek the honor and service of Mankind. Where and when, War is the best and only option to distract and unite people, Hell looms large.

The World Students Society is the exclusive ownership of every student of India, ''OneShare-Peace-Piece'', just as it is the exclusive ownership of every student in the world.

The World Students Society will never allow, rather resist nail and tooth, to stop the region and the world from becoming a death and vast killing fields.

To honor sacred Ganges, adventure tourists also travel there, Rishikesh offers river rafting, mountain trekking, zip lines and paintball tournaments.

The population is about 100,000 in winter, but in the pilgrimage - vacation season it can swell to 500,000. The city sewage treatment plant can handle the waste of only 78,000 people, Dr. Ahammad said.

The government deploys many portable toilets, but the slightest rainstorm can send sewage cascading into the river.

In 2014, Dr. Graham and Dr. Ahammad found the clean-versus-dirty line in the Ganges to be at its starkest at Rishikesh.

Upstream, the water was fairly clean both summer and winter, but downstream in summer, the levels of bacteria with drug-resistant genes were astounding. The levels of  NDM-1 - a drug resistant gene that was first discovered in India and whose and whose first two initials stand for New Delhi - were 20 times higher.

That finding has led the researchers to several conclusions. The resistant bacteria in the water had to have come from the people - specifically from their intestines.

Perhaps more intriguing, those people were fairly healthy - most were hale and hearty enough to be pilgrims, yoga students or river rafters.
Presumably, Dr. Ahammad and Dr. Graham explained, the healthy travelers' ''bad'' gut flora were held in check by their ''good'' flora.

Atleast 1,000 bacterial species have been found colonizing human intestines. A healthy individual has at least 150 species, all competing with another for space and food.

People can shed the bacteria they carry into the Ganges, Dr. Ahammad's and Dr. Graham's research shows. the, if someone else picks them up, then falls ill and is given antibiotics, the person's good bacteria can be killed and the bad ones have the opportunity to take over.

Pilgrimage areas, Dr, Ahammad and Dr, Graham wrote, are ''potential hot spots for antibiotic-resistance transmission at large scales.''

''We are not telling people to stop rituals they've done for thousands of years,'' Dr. Ahammad said.  ''But the government should do more to control the pollution and protect them.''

What will be required, he said is an Indian equivalent of the Clean Water Act, which prodded billions of federal dollars to build hundreds of sewage treatment plants across the United States.

And even that, he explained, would not be enough. While tertiary sewage treatment can kill or remove resistant bacteria, it doesn't destroy free floating DNA. ''That technology has been invented yet,'' said Mr. Shukla, who is working to invent it.

''GANGA IS OUR MOTHER'' In the meantime, pilgrims will continue to be at risk, trusting in the gods to protect them.

''Ganga is our mother - drinking her water is our fate,'' said Jairam Bhai, a large, jovial 65-year-old food vendor who held two small jugs as he waited to descend into the water in Gangotri. ''If you have faith, you are safe.''

''We don't follow bacteria, we don't think about it,'' added Jagdish Vaishnav, a 30-year-old English teacher who said he swan and drank the water in Rishhikesh, Haridwar and even the Varanasi, where torrents of raw sewage can be seen floating in the river.

Devout Hindus go there to die so that they can be cremated on the ghats or on floating rafts and have their ashes strewn on the water to free them from the cycle of death and rebirth.

Up high in Gangotri, the priests on the banks say they are well aware of the dangers downstream.

''Below Haridwar, I believe there are chances of disease,'' said Basudev Semwal, 50. ''That's why we publicize that people should come here - because it's cleaner.''

With respectful dedication to the Leaders, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world.
