Spiritual gurus are taking up the cause of India’s rivers EDITORIAL In September, one of India’s leading spiritual gurus Jaggi Vasudev, popularly called Sadhguru launched a campaign “Rally For Rivers” in order to raise awareness about the depleting rivers of India. “Due to the pressures of population and development, our perennial rivers are becoming seasonal,” he announced. Pointing out that many of the smaller rivers had vanished while both floods and droughts had become increasingly frequent, Sadhguru set out by road to cover 16 states of India over a journey of 7,000 km to spread his message. The rally was backed by prominent moviestars, cricketers and thousands of followers. The main solution suggested by the guru was to legislate such that at least one kilometre along both banks of rivers would be covered by trees. A draft policy recommendation titled “Revitalization of Rivers in India” has been produced by Isha Foundation, the non-profit organisation founded by Sadhguru. It lays out that rivers should be regarded as national treasures and that the protection of rivers should encompass: a) ensuring full ecological/environmental flows; and b) preserving biological, chemical and physical characteristics of the water. It calls for all public land next to the major rivers to be converted into forest with native species. In riverside farmlands, it suggests that there should be a tree-based agriculture practiced for a minimum width of 1 km on either side of the river. “It is our humble hope that the needed legislative and administrative steps will be taken as per our suggestions and will be made into a mandatory law,” says the report. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, another popular spiritual leader and founder of the Art of Living Foundation which runs operations in over 156 countries, has been engaged in river rejuvenation projects in India for the past five years. The foundation even hosted a conference on the topic in December 2017, in Bengaluru, which was attended by domain experts, social scientists, farmer groups and volunteers. Case studies of the small rivers revived in various states of India were presented. Prior to both these gurus, in 2004, there was Sri Sathya Sai Baba whose trust funded several major drinking water projects, one of which supplied water to 1.2 million people in 750 villages in drought-prone areas of India. Protection of water sources as well as the larger environment has been an important aspect of Hinduism, with most of its holy texts according utmost primacy to nature. Before the European colonization of India, rivers and lakes were devotedly managed by communities themselves, which ensured that there was no over-extraction or pollution. The takeover of rivers by the colonial masters ultimately set the scene for the degradation we see today. Successive governments in free India failed to anticipate the monstrous proportions of water challenges of the future. It is no surprise that the spiritual gurus of India have stepped in to do their bit to raise awareness and funds for the cause of water, which has been so revered in the culture down the ages. The mass appeal of the gurus might help to restore some of the sanctity of India’s rivers and lakes but only if combined with the political will of the government. With the current government in India being more proactive and forward-looking than previous ones, there is certainly reason for hope.
