Rivers that talk – Kanchi Kohli

Kanchi Kohli, an Independant researcher and writer whose article Rivers that Talk has been published in Civil Soicety Online. http://www.civilsocietyonline.com/pages/Details.aspx?510

River stories have been on my mind, many of them – some happy, others thoughtful, some knotted and others flowing freely. There are stories of rivers that roar in the Himalaya or run across a busy city, rivers that irrigate the plains and those that merge into the sea. Rivers also have many vivid memories for me. The soothing sight of a river after an arduous trek or dipping my feet into its waters or listening to the sound of the river as it flows past, with hornbills, driftwood and fragile boats for company.




Author: Intercultural Resources

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
