Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday a river is not a physical thing but a living entity and urged people to observe World Rivers Day and keep in mind the importance of the water body has in our lives as he addressed the nation through his monthly Mann Ki Baat radio programme. “We remember many days and celebrate different types of days. If you ask the young sons and daughters in your house, they will be able to give you a list of such days. But there is one more day that we all should remember and this day is such a day that is very consistent with the traditions of India. It is about connecting with the traditions with which we have been associated for centuries. This is ‘World Rivers Day,” he said.” PM Modi, who concluded his official three-day visit to the United States, said during the 81st edition of Mann Ki Baat
