Ankit Agarwal: Be the change you want to see

It takes real grit and courage to take it upon yourself to change what seems inevitably insurmountable and beyond you! Ankit Agarwal does exactly this as he sets about cleaning the river Ganges of its gigantic amounts of temple waste that is steadily killing the ecosystem. He further breaks barriers by employing marginalized women and giving them the dignity long denied to them. Listen in as he inspires by example to take action and create the larger-than-life impact you wish to see happen!
