Emma Bjornesparr of Sweden-an artist, places discarded bottles with water from the Ganges River as an art design to raise awareness on the water pollution in Varanasi, India. The Ganges River provides drinking water to million of Indian people yet sample from the river shows it has 1.5 million faecal coliform bacteria per 100ml of water. The safety figure for bathing is only 500 bacteria per 100ml! Therefore, millions of people suffer from waterborne diseases who use water from the Ganges River. (image by Sam Leung)
