  • Visitors who were about to board the Ganga Vilas Cruise and dignitaries attended the program, which renowned vocalist Shankar Mahadevan hosted. The voyage was flagged off the following day by Shri Narendra Modi, India's Prime Minister.
  • Beginning of the longest river cruise in the world
    • Over the course of a 51-day journey, the Ganga Vilas Cruise will pass through four Indian states, including Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Assam. The cruise is anticipated to make new history for India's waterways industry and usher in a new age of river cruise travel in the nation. Tourists will also travel by locations steeped in Ganges-related mythology and history during the boat.
  • Artistic Programme
    • The purpose of the cultural presentation, "Sur Sarita - Symphony of Ganga," was to introduce the spectators to the various cuisines of the states that the cruise would be traveling through. Popular vocalist Shankar Mahadevan was joined by folk musicians from Assam, Bihar, and Bengal to honour the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, and Brahmaputra.
    • After over an hour, the show came to a close with Shankar Mahadevan singing "Kartavya Ganga" (Promise to Ganga), a song that makes a pledge to the river goddess that every Indian will look after her and safeguard her waters.
  • Science Exhibition on the Move
    • The National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) in Kolkata also arranged a traveling science exhibition called "Arth Ganga" as a tribute to the river Ganges in addition to the cultural event. Before the event, the exhibition was flagged off in Varanasi and will go via areas and locations along the Ganges River.
