    Lack of foresight and planning… Isn’t that what causes wars in the first place?

      Its more about miscalculation. Planning is done, but then there could be over confidence, or assumptions etc that turn the direction of the victory…

    I think we haven’t tapped the potential of all our rivers yet. I am glad you are highlighting them in this series. Not only are your posts educating your readers about them but it is truly making me think about what could I do to help.

    It’s a great post, I didn’t knew the history behind this river, even my vote is always 100% for the similar kind of hydropower plants.

    Thank you for refreshing history of Jhelum river. We all know Porus fought valiantly and wanted to be treated like a king. But being a native, he should have utilised terrains of Jhelum to his advantage and trapped Greek forces (just I was wondering).

      I agree. He had the advantage of knowing the terrain. But if it was rightly done, we would not have been discussing this history! There could be a bigger reason for what happened, I just wonder 🙂

    Thanks for refreshing our memory on long-forgotten Jhelum. Yes we need proper management techniques to use our rivers to their full potential

    One of the first few rivers to be taught about in Geography classes. Thanks for refreshing our memories.
