    Large festivals and gatherings are very much a part of Indian life. It would be great to see a more organized set up using modern technology to upgrade both infrastructure, crowd management and emergency services to reduce the events of morbidity and mortality that are far too often related to such events in India.

    Also, cleaning up the Ganges has to be a top priority. Granted this would be impossible without rehabilitating the feeding rivers as well.
