गोदावरीदिनी शनिवारी नदीला जलार्पण; संवर्धनाची शपथ – दिव्या मराठी

Godavari emerged in its present form several centuries ago, as suggested by archaeologists and historians. Over a period of time, as humans began to evolve and develop, our interactions with the river transformed. Today, we are living in an era where the Godavari is the most neglected, ignored and exploited natural resource of Nashik. It is high time that we change this equation. Let us start by giving something to Godavari, for the first time. Join us on 27th January 2018, 9:00 am near Dutondya Maruti, in the celebration of the Godavari River Day by offering fresh water to Godavari, which is her right.

I am an architect turned anthropologist. After finishing my Masters in Anthropology from University of Pune, I was working with Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics, Pune under a project funded by UNICEF and Integrated Child Development Scheme, Government of Maharashtra. During which I was stationed in Nandurbar District of Maharashtra (which is predominantly a tribal region) as a Field Research officer. Currently, I am a doctoral candidate in Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Mohali, India. My current research explores the interaction of the cultural-religious, the political-economic and the ecological dimensions of the river in Nashik city in Maharashtra. Broadly, investigating how the multiple perspectives of a natural resource overlap, contradict, challenge and support each other, thus shaping the urban landscape and producing socio-spatial inequalities.
