River Nila

The project started in December 2003 when we felt the need to intervene in the deteriorating condition of the Bharatapuzha, (River Nila) in Kerala, India. What was once the life line of Kerala is today a decaying, depleting river. It is out of concern for River Nila, the erosion of the river banks, the dilution of its culture, neglect and dimishing of its resources, that the initiative was started. We wanted to provide a common platform for those who are concerned about rivers in general and River Nila in particular. As part of the initiative we networked with various musicians, folklorists, ritualists and craftspersons in the locality to document rare rituals, art forms, handicrafts and bring in a sustainable income. This initiative alone has won more than 15 national and international recognitions.
