Geography was my favourite subject and my interest continues. There is always that satisfaction when I get to see what I studied in school
Our trip to Kashmir years ago provided me an opportunity to personally see the source of a river. And that was Verinag – source of the river Jhelum which has a length of over 700 km. .
The basin of the source is tiny – just a few square feet. I saw loads of fish swimming in there. The guide explained its route in detail. This river feeds two countries. There is a gorge through which it passes to Pakistan.
I cannot but marvel at the possibility of a river having a source that starts with just a few sq. ft.
Have you visited river sources in your country?
