Does the Water of our Rivers flow "Wastefully" into the Sea?
Time & Location
About the Event
A long-standing engineering axiom states: "We must not allow river water to flow wastefully into the sea". This axiom can be said to have been the foundation of the Nehruvian paradigm of river development ever since Independence. Growing understanding of water and recent research has raised multiple questions about this instrumentalist way of looking at rivers. In our latest webinar, Dr. Mihir Shah seeks to understand from Prof. Debasis Sengupta how the recent Ocean Mixing and Monsoon (OMM) Programme and allied research can help us better understand these issues.
