Anuradha Mathur and Dilip da Cunha questions our typical understanding of rain, water and river, and rephrases how all these are connected to our behaviour towards nature. They showed evidence of how being gentle to water and letting it flow is always better than forcing and containing it within hard-lines of dams and barrages, and how natural drainage systems can save us during the upcoming crises of climate change rather than controlling it by force.
