The ninth in the series of lectures titled "Living Rivers, Dying Rivers" that aims at understanding what has been happening to rivers across India and drawing appropriate lessons is scheduled to be held on February 29, 2012 at the India International Centre, New Delhi. The series is coordinated by Prof. Ramaswamy R. Iyer. The lecture will be delivered by Himanshu Thakkar. A number of different rivers, some sick or dying, some living and healthy, and some showing early signs of sickness, are being taken up for presentations and discussion, and it is attempted to understand what has gone wrong in many cases, what has gone right in some, and what needs to be done to revive and restore dying or sick rivers.
There will be one lecture or presentation in each month, and a total of around ten or twelve such events are tentatively envisaged.
