We are pleased to invite you to the inaugural lecture,
‘Rivers – a flow of life !’
by Ketaki Ghate
(Founder & Partner, Oikos for Ecological Services, Trustee & Faculty – Ecological Society, Pune)
Get to know the ecology of Rivers and the associated biodiversity and it’s significance..
Get to know Rivers in a very different light. … not merely as a GIVER of LIFE but also as a FLOW of LIFE !
Know how a river changes in its form, flow and temperament in the course of its journey right from source to mouth…
Know why any restorative or beautification work must be done with an ecological perspective to truly be beneficial.
We revere our rivers as ‘Mother’… Our ancient civilizations flourished on the banks of our rivers … but are we really cautious about them any more !
Perhaps in the light of this knowledge, we shall learn to alter our behaviour and become worthy of our rivers once again.
