Urban "development" is killing India's rivers a stream at a time. We are violating wetlands that charge streams and groundwater. We are channelizing small streams that charge rivers. We are converting rivers to sewers. We are reclaiming the land of the river.

This photo presentation illustrates each of these ways we kill our rivers. It also narrates the fight of a few people to save a small stream, Devnadi, in Baner in Pune.

A plea is made for an Conservation of Rivers Act outlining the chapters that would need to go into such an Act.
