GANGOTRI & YAMUNOTRI 
 
The Himalayan - born River Goddesses  

It is their gift that is creating divine tranquility, instrumental in Maharishis piling up inestimable and inexhaustible Bharatiya vignana; it is the names of these sisters that have become warp and woof of riverine fantasies embodying the glorious history of some illustrious pouranic and historical personages, who wooed and wedded; it is on the banks of these two that marry divine persons incarnated from time to time; it is these two sisters who were worshipped by the celestials too; and it is these twins, who blessed emancipation to the wickedest species mankind by a mere bath. Well, such similarities and the terms of comparison are many; they essay but one thing - telling that they are adorable river sisters, worthy of yearning for a dip or sip.

Now begins the contrast. It proves the superiority one over the other, but it must be kept in mind that each is as great and pious as the other, and so none be degraded, or assigned inferior role, or consigned to unholy places. The greater glory, or the superiority of one is possible, and exists in comparative degree only, else each is as good as the other and as auspicious as the other. And in terms of utility too.
