Dua, Amalia and Nayan are in Patna, which is located on the middle course of the river where the Ganges is over 4km wide. They meet a local scientist as they travel along the river, and discuss how the river is deemed sacred to Hindus and a lifeline to local people who use the river to irrigate their crops, to wash and to travel, yet it is heavily polluted. The pollution affects the river dolphin population. The pupils discover that the course of the river changes as it slows and it deposits sediment, which helps provide the farmers with rich, fertile soil when the river floods during the monsoon.
