    Such an interesting story of how Kaveri got it’s name. Isn’t it ironical that the river that taught the Sage how not to have an ego is the reason for a ego battle for it’s waters?

      How true right? Its just politics, and no one wants to solve it. So, its still dragging even after 2 decades. Hopefully the interlinking and other such projects takes a shape soon from being in just a paper.

    Improve seen this storyline one of the oh my friend ganesha movies. And always hear in news about two states fighting over kaveri water, however you have rightly said no one is taking about conserving the available water resource.

    I like your consistent point across the posts is that – we need to take immediate measures to conserve and use these rivers to their fullest potential. Most important and much-needed series in the A2Z.

    Had seen Cauvery when I visited mysuru last year and was saddened by the state of the river bed and the area enclosed by Brindavan garden. Moving ahead in my trip I noticed the illegal beach sand mining too on carts late night near nambiyar river also at kollidam river. sad part is that sharing of waters of the Kaveri River has been the source of a serious conflict between the two states.

      Yes, river sand is also an integral part of construction industries. But if that is allowed without any policing, then only construction will be there, with no people alive to live in.

    Thank you for writing about the meaning of Kaveri river. I think no river should run dry. There must be minimum flow ensured. A lot of flora and fauna will be affect if a river runs dry. Sand mining is supported by political parties. If politicians want, sand mining can be stopped. Finally, one or two dam on a river may be understandable for storing water, generating electricity etc. But building many dams not only on the main river but also on tributaries is a stupid act. Don’t kill the hen that lays golden egg.

      I think India for sure has water engineering people, and who can think in right direction. So, I will leave those decision to them. Policy makers should do what is good for the bigger audience and make sure all are benefited.

    Enjoyed reading about river Kaveri. How it got her name and the importance. No wonder it’s an explanation for why we Indians worship rivers as Goddesses.
