The Tirap River is located in Arunachal Pradesh which is situated the northeastern part of India. This river is associated with the land of the rising sun. One standing close to the river can get a glimpse of the rising sun early in the morning. The river is small and is not that important to the people living in the regions close to it, but one shouldn’t forget that each water body has its own significance.
There is no river left free of pollution in today’s world. The increasing population has led to the growth and development of urban towns and centers. There are a number of factories and industries built close to the river. The construction of a bridge over the river has enabled easy travel and transportation.
Wastes generated from factories, industries and houses deplete the river to a great extent. Oil, raw materials, garbage, liquid waste and fly ash have mingled with the river which has resulted in complete destruction of the river. This has led to the loss of life inside the river. Thousands of fish have been killed because of pollution in the river. Domestic wastes have made the river unfit for usage. People now understand the importance of the river as the water can’t be used for drinking, washing, bathing and other such domestic purposes. Tourism and picnic spots close to the river also have a role to play in the depletion of the water body. People going for picnic near the river throw empty cans, glasses, broken plates, etc. into the river, which makes the river unfit for any purpose.
There are a number of methods planned and designed to clean river Tirap, but this is not as easy as it looks. The river however is a source of enjoyment for the people as the go for boat rides, etc to the river. Tourists also go to visit this small river and add to the pollution of the river. Since the river is small it can’t be used for navigation which means it is not economic for the people of the region as it is not useful for trade.
