There are many study reports and news stating that the rivers in Kerala are in danger. We never take the warnings and alerts given by the environmentalists and research institutions into consideration. But one thing is sure that most of our rivers are polluted. On understanding this hard fact, today the National Green Tribunal has made a notable directive suggesting to collect compensation from the state Government and the polluters for causing excess pollution of rivers in Kerala. They have also appointed a committee to revive these rivers. Will this ensure the smooth flow of the rivers? Nammalariyanam.
