Nothing can be completed in Uttar Pradesh without the input of river Ganges and that is why there are many significant days dedicated to its purity and divine past. A dip in the Ganges is a symbol of a new beginning, leaving behind muddles of life and it is of most importance to the Hindu devotees. Honestly, the emphasis of Ganges needs no particular day as it is equally eternal through the year, but still, to mark its prominence Ganga Dussehra is a day to be remembered.
