Sample Answer

Water bodies like rivers are of paramount importance for the survival of humans and other living organisms on this planet. Although my country has vast rivers like the holy Ganges and the mighty Brahmaputra , I’ll like to talk about the river Indus which is one of the longest rivers in Asia. I witnessed the beauty of Indus on my visit to Leh last year. Originating in the Tibetan plateau, the river runs a course through the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir. Then it flows through the entire length of Pakistan before draining into the Arabian Sea. Going back in history, the Indus or Sindh river had a significant role in the development of the Indus valley civilization. The remains of ancient cities of Harappa and Mohenjodaro were found on the banks of this river. Indus merges with Zanskar river near a place called Nimoo , a few kilometres from Leh .The confluence point offers the most mesmerizing view which is a treat for the eyes. What is even more impressive that this river is the lifeline of people living in this otherwise arid and barren high-altitude desert. Indus remains frozen for almost a quarter of the year and locals provide ice skating facilities for the tourists. One of the locals told me that the blind Indus river dolphin is a sub-species of dolphin found only in the Indus river and is on the verge of extinction. Although Pakistan generates hydropower with the help of dams and barrages on Indus, there is none on the Indian side. In the end, I’d like to say that It’s our duty to conserve our precious water resources for the sustenance of life on the Earth and for the betterment of future generations.(290 Words)
