Question

I was born in the Siwalik range in the Sirmaur district of Himachal Pradesh. I am 320kms in length. My journey takes me to the plains of Mubarakpur, Patiala, Ghanour, Haryana and Rajasthan. During my life, I provide water for irrigation and drinking through canals. I end my journey in the Thar desert. Who am I?
  1. Chitti Bein
  2. Ghaggar
  3. Kali Bein
  4. Beas


Solution

The correct option is B Ghaggar
The Ghaggar is a seasonal stream, which rises in the Siwalik Range, in the Sirmaur district of Himachal Pradesh. It flows nearly 320 km southwest, entering into the plains of Mubarakpur, which is 1.6 km from Manimajra. After passing through Patiala, Ghanour, and Haryana, it enters Rajasthan and eventually dries up in the Thar desert. People utilise the water through two irrigation canals located southwest of Sirsa, which feed into the Rajasthan state. Being a seasonal river, it’s flow is dependent on the monsoon rainfall.
