The river “Aghanashini” of the Western Ghats in India is a unique river that remains untamed and unpolluted by man. It still flows in its natural course because there are no dams to change its course and there are no industries along its path to pollute its water. Up until now, there has been no effort to document the uniqueness of this river through its entire length. In the time when ‘development’ is the mantra of any government in the country, there exists this silent river that is holding onto its ground and nurturing the land and forest and becoming a river of life for hundreds of thousands of people along its flow.
