Revisit the rivers of India with BYJU’S

Team StoryWeavers|September 28, 2019, 12:23 IST| 6

Most of the world’s civilizations thrived on the river banks. In that case, it would not be wrong to say that these water bodies are the cradles of our civilizations. Occupying 71 percent of the planet, these freshwater bodies have been a source of food and life. India is home to several rivers – some originating from the Himalayas and others from the Western Ghats. Studying these rivers can be a great learning exercise, especially for students. 

So, this World Rivers Day, why don’t you join us, as we visit the rivers of India.  

The Himalayan Rivers 

(Originating from the Himalayas, these rivers flow through the northern plains)

The Peninsular Rivers

 (also known as the Peninsular Drainage, these rivers emerge from the Western Ghats)

About the Author

Books are Tanaya Goswami’s first love and cheesecakes come a close second. Talking about movies, music, calligraphy, politics, and Elon Musk will get you listed under the friends’ section of her diary. Ever since moving on from her job as an English lecturer, she spends her time at BYJU’S crafting stories filled with emotion and sprinkled with sarcasm. Outside of work, she’s either learning something new (French, most recently!) or is curled up with a book and a cup of coffee. She firmly believes that discovering what you don’t know is the key to knowledge and is constantly working towards improving herself. Drop in a line at if you liked her stories, have something nice to say, or if you have compelling ideas to share!
