India is witnessing a very deficient monsoon this year that is threatening agriculture, industry and people equally. Yet states in North East and Western India have recently experienced floods that not only led to loss of lives and property but also led to wastage of the most precious resource of the 21st century, ‘WATER’. After hearing disheartening news about these floods, recently there was a news which caught me very happy and satisfied.

The Indian state of Andhra Pradesh took a historic step of interlinking Godavari and Krishna, the two of the most important rivers of the Deccan Plateau together. It was a decades’ pending development that is being seen as a major boost especially to the farmers who have been consistently facing intense water shortage. Incidentally this project namely Pattiseema Lift Irrigation Project was completed in record eight months ever since the work had commenced recently.

The commissioning of the project happened by performing of poojan at the hands of Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, N. Chandrababu Naidu a couple of weeks back. The project is situated near Vijayawada where the water of Godavari and Krishna are made to meet under this project. This event is particularly path breaking as it is claimed to be the first ever success at river interlinking in India, which is part of the larger project namely National Water Grid or the National River Linking Project.
