The rally led by Sadhguru began its journey at Talacauvery, the source of the river Cauvery in Karnataka, on September 3 and traversed about 3,500 km. The rally is passing through the districts in the Cauvery belt in both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu to consolidate on-ground multi-stakeholder support for concerted action to revive the river.
The rally had entered Tamil Nadu on September 11 after concluding its Karnataka leg in Bengaluru on September 8. The rally will reach Puducherry on September 15 after passing through Tiruchy, Thanjavur and Tiruvarur where river Cauvery flows into the ocean. The rally will move to Chennai from Puducherry on Sunday itself before culminating in Coimbatore on September 17.A uniquely modelled project, Cauvery Calling, primarily focuses on significantly enhancing farmer wealth while simultaneously impacting river flow and riverine eco-systems.
It will enable farmers in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka to plant saplings of 242 crore trees in the Cauvery basin by adopting agroforestry on their own farm lands. In Tamil Nadu 69,670 farmers have taken to agroforestry through Isha Agroforestry and have reported significant rise in their income. Several State Cabinet Ministers, MPs and an MLAs will also be present on the occasion.
Cauvery Calling is a first of its kind campaign, setting the standard for how India’s rivers, the country’s lifelines can be revitalized. It will initiate the revitalisation of river Cauvery by supporting farmers to plant saplings of 242 crore trees in the river basin. This will increase water retention in the basin, while enhancing farmer wealth by 300 to 800 percent in 5 to 7 years and transforming the lives of 84 million people.
