A 4 page discussion of the Indian myth of the River Sutra. The writer examines this story as being similar in theme to popular American 'old wives' tales.' The healing powers of the river can easily be compared with those of chicken soup-- the capacity to cure is really only mental. The paper goes on to discuss the plight of individual characters along the River Sutra but it is ultimately concluded that the River does not have any healing powers over the seriously ill. No additional sources cited.
