He could have enjoyed his life in comfort but fought for a cause & left.I am referring to Professor GD Agarwal who devoted his life to the cause of saving river Ganga & was on a fast-unto-death for nearly four Months & died today. He began his fasting in order to protest against the government's administration for its alleged inaction in taking appropriate measures to make the Ganga River free of pollution & at the same time free-flowing.
GD Agarwal was once a professor at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur & later on he also served as a Member-Secretary of the Central Pollution Control Board or CPCB.
He wasn't a celebrity & this may be the reason that we still are not aware of him but he fought & died for a cause for cleaning the River Ganga which to some extent could work well with our next generation. May rest in peace.
