Ganga Gets A Promotion

Here’s the WTF headline of the day:

Ganga to be declared a national river

I’m baffled about what purpose is served by declaring Ganga to be “a national river”. Protecting “the ancient river from pollution and other degradation” is a worthy cause, but why do they need to declare it a national river for that?

I now demand that India be declared our national country. Maybe then the government will look after it as well.
