11. Translate the following into English 

गंगा हिमालय से निकलती है । यह आमतौर पर दक्षिण पूर्व दिशा की ओर बहती है । लम्बी दूरी तय करके यह बंगाल की खाड़ी में जा गिरती है । ऋषिकेश तक गंगा पहाड़ों में बहती है किन्तु इसके बाद वह मैदानों में आ जाती है । इलाहाबाद में इसकी मुख्य सहायक नदी यमुना इसमें मिल जाती है । सर्दी में गंगा पानी की एक संकरी धारा बन जाती है किन्तु बरसात में यह अपने किनारों से बाहर बहने लगती है । अन्य कई नदियाँ भी हिमालय से निकलती हैं । किन्तु लोग सबसे ज्यादा महत्त्व गंगा को ही देते हैं । हिन्दू लोग इसकी पूजा करते हैं । गंगा के पश्चिम में यमुना भी हिमालय से निकलती है किन्तु यह दूसरा समानान्तर पथ धारण करती है । गंगा हरिद्वार और ऋषिकेश से होकर बहती है । यह ( यमुना ) दिल्ली और आगरा से होकर बहती है ।

The Ganga rises from the Himalayas. Generally it flows towards the south – east. Having covered a long track, it falls down into the Bay of Bengal. The Ganga flows through mountains upto Rishikesh but after this it comes down the fields. The Yamuna, its tributary , merges with it in Allahabad . In the winter the Ganga turns to be a narrow stream but in rainy season it overflows its banks. Many other rivers also rise from Himalayas. But the people give the greatest importance to the Ganga only. The Hindus worship it. In the west of the Ganga, the Yamuna also rises from the Himalayas but it takes parallel course. The Ganga flows through Haridwar and Rishikesh. The Yamuna flows through Delhi and Agra.
