Backwaters


Was traveling with a colleague and he was planning a trip to Kerala… When I told him that it has amazing backwaters… and then I got puzzled when he questioned… what backwaters exactly mean.

According to Wiki Answers… Backwaters is any river or flowing water turned back from its regular path due to an obstruction – either man-made( dams ) or natural ( a forest, a land piece)

For example, the Kerala back waters were formed by the action of waves and shore currents creating low barrier islands across the mouths of the many rivers flowing down from the Western Ghats range.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
