While the recent ruling of the Supreme court on the Cauvery conflict opens up new possibilities, a push for holistic and interdisciplinary river basin governance is required.

The river Cauvery—an inter-state river shared by the southern states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, as well as the Union Territory of Pondicherry—has often been in the news for the fight over its waters between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. What dominates the issue is the conflicting demands for irrigation from the plateau region of Karnataka and the delta region in Tamil Nadu.

Hello, I reside in a village nearby to Madurai, Tamil Nadu. We own a farmland of five acres, in which we recently dug a borewell of 1000 ft depth, as our farm land heavily rely on the borewater. We installed submersible motor of 7.5 HP capacity and started yielding water out of it. It pumps out 1.5 inch of water for about 1 hr daily. This availability of water from this borewell is more likely to deplete in the coming months (because in summers, we face water shortage in borewells every year & other nearby farms too).
