In New Delhi…Yamuna River Article
New Delhi, India-I currently am in New Delhi, India. Contact +91 9650520409
I’m starting this blog after having my website justinvela.com badly hacked after blogging about Tibet while in China. The initial hack occurred last January, but since then I seem to have been added to a list of sites that get routinely hacked and my website and the attached blog are still down.
During my time in China I was near the end of the 24 month journey around the world that I completed during my final years of university and initial foray into journalism. Now, I’m focusing largely on Asia and am currently working on a story for The Caravan, a New Delhi based publication, on the Yamuna river. The Yamuna is one of the most polluted rivers in the world and the article will explore not only how the river came to be so polluted and the various characters that live along its banks, but also how societies allow their natural resources to be destroyed.
