Indian rivers

KAVERI

The golden river

The 785-km course of the kaveri, regarded as the sacred Dskshina Ganga, is dotted with historic a religious sites. As the kaveri winds south-eastwards, through Karnataka and Tamil nadu towards the Bay of Bengal, a number of tributaries, such as the hemvati, Kabini and aiyar, invigorate its glow, at oompuhar, on the Coromandel Coast, the fresh water of the Kaveri spills into the salt-laden sea. Before that, after passing the temple town to Tiruchirappalli, the kaveri begins to dissipate into a delta system which spans more than 80 km from north to south.

At talakaveri, the kaveri tricks into a trout in front of a small shrine. Pilgrims head to Talakaveri all the year round, though mosty visit during October to November when the river, revered saw a goddess, celebrates her birhteday. Known s Tulasankramana day, it is marked by a brief surge in pressure at the river's source. To the inhabitants of the Kodagu region, the event has special significance. Theerhodhava is a time for ancestor worship and the celebration of local traditions.

Texts such as the Tulakaverimanmiyam and kaverittalpuranam document the mythology of the Kaceri's origins. Swami Amanda Tertha, who has spent a lifetime around the sorties and knows them by heart, knows the subtle differences into him Kannada Tamil versions of the legends. "A sage named Agasthya, the father of the Tamil language, come to this are and asked kaversa for his daughter... Kaveri agreed to marry him; under the condition that agasthya should never be away for more than 40 minutes at a tie. Back then, there was no water on the side other mountain, so Agasthya went to the other side of the Brahmagiri. He kept kaveri in the form of water, in a jug and that is how the Kaveri River emerged....," explains the Brahmagiri resident.

Into the Tamil versions, elders pleaded for water to Ganesh, who then sent Kaveri River towards Tamil Nadu. Though the details of the river's divine origins may be disputed the kaveri's thought the details of the river's divine origins may be disputed, the Kaveri's importance to the region is not.

Ganga

The Holy Descent

The 2,600-km long Journey of the Ganga has many twists and turns. The river comes into being at Devprayag in Tehri Garhwal, uttrakhand. It is here that the holy union of its two main tributaries, Bhagirathi and Alaknanda, Takes plea. Considered to be the main origin of ganga,m the Gangotri is actually the source for Bhagirathi. The Badrinath shinre represents the origin of its other main tributary, Alkananda.

As the Alkananda races down the district of Chamoil, it finds the Mandakini river coming down the Nanda peaks, Tehse peaks include the Nanda devi (over 7,800m) the second highest in India. This journey continues to Rudraprayag, where the quieter Mandakinin with its replacement green color can be seen merginn into the white water of a rapidly flowing Alkananda. Travelling down the Mandakini River takes you to the holy Kedarnath. It is now that Alkananda longs to meet Bhagirathi at Devprayag.

From Devrayag onwards, the Gangas moves fist to rishikesh, a town next to haridwar, famous as much for its spiritual hermitages, as much as for its opportunities for white-water rafting for adventure enthusiasts. Finally, it is at haridwar that the Ganga enters the plans and transforms into a placide river. The confluence of the Ganga and the Yamuna is one of the biggest pilgrimages for Hindus. A dip at this confluence called Sangam, is auspicious. Allahabad – also known as Triveni –is the place for the merger of the invisible reier Sarwswati and the Ganga.

The journey of the Ganga continues form here to kashi or Varanasi, a city seeped into and ancient past. Synonumous with Hindu thought, Religion, temple, art, music and culture the city is also famous for its numerous passages leading down to the river (about 100). As the Ganga moves form uttar Pradesh to Bihar, Various rivers continue to joint it. These include the Ramganga, Kosi, Gandak and Ghaghara. As the rivers moves into West Bengal, it becomes sluggish and placid. Thereafter, she becomes the Hooghly and moves towards ganga sagar where she dissolves into the Vastness of the ocean.

      Of the rivers I have seen in India Narmada also known as Mah Revah is in my opinion the most beautiful. It runs under the golden bridge at Bharuch in Gujerat. The narmada has inspired me deeply each time I've seen her. Jewel green waters. And as far I know purified water from the Narmada are available to drink too. Refreshing. The river fills me with a deep sense of gratitude for fresh water.

      Good hub.
