At the Narmada River

We arrive at the Hospital Jalaram Aarogya Dham, Vasantpura, in time for lunch. This is a charity hospital for the local tribes who live in the area. They provide medical care for free. The building is located near the Narmada River, where we how hold our next workshop. After lunch we walk down to the river. It has not very much water, very flat, it looks like one could just walk across it. Some of the group begin writing, others paint. Dr. Yoshi from Sardar Patel University explains to us some of the background, as further upstream there is this large controversial dam. A few km south from here there are mountains raising from the otherwise flat plain. We are told that during the Monsoon season, the tigers and leopards come out. I would like to see that!
