28 Jul Min kc Joseph inaugurated the Nila revival plan at a price tag of 1200 crores.. I wish this act helps Nila. But then with half a dozen dams and reservoirs in the basin and innumerable water works in the basin chances are grim. Water is scarce in summer months. That is what troubles the system. Certainly there will be contracts construction various sorts to protect the river shores and the out come will be uncertain. Perhaps the only great thing the admin can do is banning sand removal from the river channel however there are still large no of scientists in support of sourcing fine aggregate from river channels in the name of justice to the little keralite. As long as this view prevails forget about the old Nila coming back and the new Nila will never be like any thing we could picture in mind. River metamorphosis due to human intervention is unstoppable. Anthropocene is here to stay. If conventional wisdom sits over science, rivers are doomed.
