Uttarakhand HC declares Ganga, Yamuna living entities, gives them legal rights

The Uttarakhand high court on Monday declared the Ganga and Yamuna living entities, bestowing on them same legal rights as a person, a move that could help in efforts to clean the pollution-choked rivers.
The court’s order will allow complaints to be filed in the name of the two rivers, held sacred by millions of Hindus. It also gives the Centre eight weeks to set up boards for cleaning and maintaining the rivers.
“It means now Ganga and Yamuna rivers will be treated like a natural person but only through a designated person,” advocate MC Pant told HT.

Glaciers, forests, rivers ‘living entities’: Uttarakhand HC

In its 66-page order, the division bench of Justices Rajiv Sharma and Alok Singh declared that rivers, forests, lakes, water bodies, air, glaciers — Gangotri and Yamunotri — and springs are all living entities. The bench said that like human beings, they also have a right to exist, persist, maintain, sustain and regenerate their vital ecology system.

Just like Mahabharat.

Ganga was cursed to be human
Ganga lived as human with Shantanu for few years
Ganga then goes back to devlok (no more human)

HC - Ganga will be human
Ganga lives as human for few months
SC - Ganga is not human (for now)
