| White water rafting on the rapids near Dandeli.
This sport is a source of tourist revenue to the place -- both directly
to the people who run the rafting club, as well to other people
who benefit from the presence of these tourists in this area.
With the new dam coming up, the rapids will be lost which will mean a
loss of revenue for all of these people dependent on this sport.
The Padayatre (foot march) that was undertaken by Pandurang Hegde (second

2nd till 12th, 2203.
