KRS is full!

Saw this picture on the front page of Deccan Herald today. Was filled with immense delight!


I saw the KRS being full in 1999 when I had gone to Mysore with my parents. After that I have never seen the KRS again. Every year, KRS used to figure prominently in the papers among the reservoirs that are expected to fill up during the monsoons. I think it was 2001 when the reservoir waters really touched a very low point. Or may be 2002. In 2005, the reservoir did overflow, much to everyone’s excitement and joy. The KRS was a frequented tourist point. But it did not fill up so early. This year, the KRS has filled up early. Thanks to the copious rains in the Kaveri catchment areas.

KRS also has huge importance in terms of age of the reservoir and it holding the most debated and fought-over waters in recent times. The waters of the river Kaveri. And therefore KRS filling up is a welcome news anytime. Sometime soon I want to visit Mysore to see the Brindavan Gardens, KRS and one more place where you can step into the Kaveri River – The Sangama @ Srirangapatna. :-) Tripologue later…
