Renowned industrialist Anand Mahindra on Saturday shared a shocking photo of the Alaknanda River flowing in the Bhagirathi river. The photograph, which is perhaps a drone shot, shows the narrow expanse of convergence with the Bhagirathi of Alaknanda in Devprayag, Uttarakhand. The Mahindra & Mahindra Company chairman captioned the picture, 'Alaknanda' means 'Nirmal'. Because I can see it. '
The photo was shared on the official Twitter page of 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav', an initiative of the Ministry of Culture, with the caption 'Pic of the Day'. People were very mesmerized after Anand Mahindra and the government shared the shocking photo. As soon as they saw the photo, people were inspired to share it. Many praised the photographer for presenting stunning photos. The picture was first shared on his Twitter account @TravelingBharat.
‘Alaknanda’ means ‘flawless.’ I can see why… https://t.co/Mwu4mEBSiB— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) May 14, 2022
One of the major rivers originating from Uttarakhand is the Alaknanda River. This river is a Himalayan river flowing in the Uttarakhand region of India. It is one of the two major streams of the Ganga (the other is the Bhagirathi). Alaknanda comes from Bhagirathi at Rudra Prayag in Uttarakhand. This holy river holds special significance for pilgrims visiting important pilgrimages. One of the major pilgrimage sites, Badrinath is present on the banks of the Alaknanda river. The place is surrounded by two mountain ranges of Nara and Narayan on both sides and the Neelkanth peak behind the Narayana range. The presence of this holy place on the banks of the river makes it very important.
