River activist Shashi Shekhar has restarted his fast to protest embankments on the Adhwara Samuh rivers in North Bihar. Will the authorities relent this time around?

Noted activist Shashi Shekhar has been on an indefinite fast since December 10th, protesting the construction of embankments on the Jheem Jamura river.

Here, about 28-30 rivers criss cross, merge and flow across the landscape for nearly 8 months in a year, and dry up during the summer.
