Nila Foundation


Surabhi Sunil is a fan of

What was once the life line of Kerala, is today a decaying, depleting river.
It is out of concern for Bharatapuzha (River Nila), the erosion of the river banks, the dilution of it’s culture, neglect and depletion of it’s resources :
that the Nila foundation was formed. Their study about the rivers is going to be released on 5th June 2010 and the book is titled “Puzha Malayalam”
“Puzha Malayalam is an exploration of Kerala and her rivers; a journey that begins with Kerala’s cultural history and wends its way to the environmental degradation of the State. It is a book that illustrates how rivers are a part and parcel of the Malayalee way of life. A book that reminds us that the death of a river is the death of Kerala itself and that the only way to protect life is by protecting rivers. A book that offers glimpses of hope, even as it underlines the burning realties of environmental degradation in the State. Written in the language of love, this is a book for every Malayalee who cherishes rivers.”
