RIVER CAUVERY THE MOST BATTL(R)ED

Author Name: Ka.Vi.Kannan | Format: Paperback | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details

I was born into a farming family. As a Delta Farmer, I have been in the agricultural business for the past fifty years.

The farming activity in delta districts is solely dependent on River Cauvery. Since the year 1974, Cauvery delta farmers have been deprived of their right to use Cauvery water. This dmade them poor, debt struck and has led to suicides. Farming has become unsustainable. The root cause of all these sufferings is the insufficient flow of Cauvery water.

The aim of this book is to let our North Indian leaders, BJP and Congress, know that River Cauvery is sacred and revered and that it makes the delta soil fertile and rich. Without Cauvery water, the delta lands now look barren and dead. All the fine arts grew and developed only because of Cauvery. Architecture was in full bloom on the banks of Cauvery because of Tamil kings.

Cauvery irrigation is systemic and technically viable. Solutions to augment the flow of Cauvery water from the west-flowing rivers have been proposed to resolve the issue permanently.
