Why the initiative of Goda Parikrama? (Reason 3)

The lack of awareness, and primarily ignorance is inhibiting Nashikkars from engaging with Godavari at a grass-root level. To instil a sense of belongingness, increase public participation, and to transform the apathy into empathy we have developed the initiative of ‘Reconnecting with Godavari’. And the Goda Parikrama is an on-ground activity and a key venture, through which we aim to revive the threads of affection towards Godavari.

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.
